I have a factory HP Compaq Presario SR1710NX with a:
Sempron (P) 3400+ 2.0 GHz Processor
Asus A8AE-LE Motherboard
A 250W Power supply.
No Video Card.
Is there any way this PC can be transformed into a more modern day PC or is it a lost cause???
By lost cause I mean, would building a brand new computer be a better idea?
What I am really asking is, is there anything I can buy to make this a better Pc without replacing pretty much EVERYTHING?

Other than the hard disk and case (the front panel connector might have to be modified), the rest can be sold, but have you considered selling the whole PC after building a new one?

i recommend selling it if you can or using it as a second computer. There is no way you can transform this computer without pretty much changing everything. even the hard drive is probably outdated and slow (5400 rpm) and the case would be hard to wire and cable management...
