Wanting to "pimp out" my HP Pavilion 754n?

I'm trying to do some homebrew game programming with XNA, and I know I need to upgrade my graphics card and memory. My question is how much disk space can I add, what is the max GPU i can have in her, should I update my processor to make things run better, or should i get a new computer?

Current specs are:

Windows XP SP 3
2.53 Ghz processor (single)
512 MB Ram (I know I can go up to 2 GB)
64 MB NVIDIA graphics card
Acer sound card
80 GB hard drive.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you!

Your HP 754n is from 2003. It has an MSI MS-6577 v2.x motherboard, which has an Intel 845G chipset and AGP 4X slot. The motherboard accepts 533 MHz fsb version Pentium 4 processors up to 3.06 GHz, and a maximum of 1GB (2 x 512MB) PC2100 rated RAM.

It's not a bad computer. It could be perfectly reliable for basic web surfing and Office programs, so long as you upgrade it to the full 1GB of RAM it supports.

But it's not any kind of gaming computer, and not worth upgrading for that purpose. The Pentium 4 was good when it was new, but it's too old and slow to run current games. The AGP slot makes it harder and more expensive to install a good video card --and you would need to upgrade the power supply as well.

At this point, I tell people not to buy AGP video cards at all, not to spend any significant money on one. It's okay to spend $30 on an AGP video card off Ebay, to make an old computer run older games better, but spending $100 or more on a new AGP video card is a waste of money.

(I notice Microsoft XNA Game Studio 3.0 requires a graphics card that supports DirectX 9.0c, with Shader Model 2.0 recommended. That's a pretty current version video card.)

You would be better off trying to scrounge up a newer computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2.5 GHz or above, with at least 2GB of RAM, in a standard ATX or microATX mini-tower case (no slim cases). That would be a more appropriate platform to install a newer video card and power supply into.

I see several of these for sale on Ebay, new/sealed Dell Vostro 220 with an E7400, for $350-$385. You could do a lot worse.

To turn a plain Vostro 220 into a credible gaming PC, plan on upgrading the power supply and video card, for about $150 more. (A good 400W power supply is $50-$55, and there are several good video cards for around $100.)
