Jump up with new CPU & RAM, Looking to add windows 7, BR durner to use as a dvr, or if it gets to expensive maybe get something new around the 600.00 ballpark. Thanks

Is Newegg.com an option to purchase from?...

So you are looking at $600 for CPU, MOBO, RAM, Win7 and maybe a BD... Correct?

Yes, I don't know if it would be better to purchase new or upgrade, I have a HP M7170n Media center desktop, its old but works for me.

My recommendation would be to keep your current PC and save up about $1,000 and build a completely new system. One can be built for $600 but IMO you have a better system & options at $1,000.

For an HTPC type computer, that barebones kit is pretty good with the SSD and 1TB drive. If you are wanting more of a gaming system, you could simply add in an EVGA GTX 460 for $240 more and make it a pretty capable gaming system.

For $1,000, I was talking more about the types of builds you can find in these threads...
