Running off a 450w ps. I am looking at just trying to upgrade this. But with all the deals that are going on, it may be cheaper and better in the long run to just buy new and turn this into a server for my family and roommates so we do not bog down our own stuff.
Any help with either upgrades, or new ideas to a new setup completely would be appreciated. On a new build the only thing I would likely keep is the GC as the biostar board has plenty of onboard video for a server.

It is not a bad system. If you are a gamer you could upgrade the GPU to HD5770 any higher cards like GTX460 would need a new PSU. Then there is always the windows 7 upgrade.
