what are you going to be doing on this pc? playing games, surfing the internet, office apps, graphic editing? i would say at least get 1gig of ram, at least a 3gig processor, if possable get a amd 64. personaly i would just go out to fry's and get a mobo processor combo, for about 200ish (just make sure the video card is the same type as you current video card, agp or pci-x. you probley have agp) if you are not planing on playing newer games, you can probley go with a amd sempron or a intel p4 but the amd 64 will just out run the sempron and p4 hands down. get 2 gigs of ram, should run you about 200, spend 100 on a case with a powersupply. if you need to cut at little i would take the ram to 1.5 gig or 1 gig depending on deals and future expansion (if your mobo has 2 slots, get a gig and a 512 sitck or maybe just a gig stick). you can get a cdrw\dvd combo for like 50. and on to you all in one printer\fax\scanner thing, i would probley only get a printer unless you need a scanner a good printer will run you about 100-150 depending on quality. it will be kinda tight to get all of that but you realy want a 64 processor and at least 1 gig of ram. i would not recomend you to get any 32bit processor, ie sempron or p4, because the next version of windows is going to be writen for 64 bit and you know a 32bit chip is going to run it like ass even though they say it will work fine on 32bit machines.
