    You realy don't need that many upgrades. A P4 $70 and a good AGP card $60-$100 and maby more ram $50 for an aditional 512 MB. If you did this you would have a decent mid range system for less than $250. Building a system from scrath with those specs after upgrade would cost atleast $500. If you want a Ultra high end system you should build a new one but if you just want a system that won't lag, will run vista well, and run most games at good settings I would recomend you save some money and upgrade your current system.

    Here are some sugestions
    Video card: or

    To give you an idea what you would get if you do decide to sell it.
    My local computer shop oftain has used system with specs similar to those and they usually sell for $130 but they have a 3 month warrenty to back them up. As a privite person selling the system with no warrenty you might be able to get $60-$120. Personaly I wouldn't pay more than $90 for a used system with those specs and no warrenty. You may be able to get more if you split it up and sell off the parts.

    It's probably worth $300 - $400 max. Dell has Pentium D's with 1 GB RAM starting at $350, so that was my reference point

    If you live near a decent sized town, put it on for $100 - $150 and see if you get any takers. Free to list on craigslist.
