    Can't give you a good answer without knowing:

    --what kind of cpu

    --motherboard chipset/socket support

    --how much RAM

    --what kind of graphics card

    --size of power supply

    With a system that old though, I suspect the other posters are correct that it won't be cost effective to upgrade (too many components will need to be replaced).

    Wow if it's from 2005 there is absolutely nothing worth upgrading. Buy a new PC

    As stated, at this point the only real parts worth salvaging would be the case and maybe the DVDRW drive.

    Take everything out the case, throw it away and put all new parts inside it
