    This POS computer keeps jacking out on me. I think my graphics card is going south, but I don't want the hassle of buying and installing a new one. Problem is, I have a new 40 GB hard drive and new 24x10x40 CD burner that I most likely won't be able to use in a new PC. Do I spring for a new machine or put another band-aid on this one? It's a 500 mhz P3 w/256 MB ram. Opinions?

    You can get a "Starters Kit" from Sam's Club. All you'll need then is a prosessor (Uses AMD), memory , and to transfer all your drives from your old computer. Not a bad deal if you want to step up to over 2gigs.
