Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Hmm...look at your I/O Shield; I believe it is welded into place {most OEM PCs are that way}. If that's true then you may as well start from scratch.

If the above link is your PC then you'll need to define 'upgrade' vs 'replace' - if you upgrade the old architecture with new architecture then pretty much every component will need to be replaced including the RAM {DDR2->DDR3}, etc.
