the comp is fairly low end. it can only take 2GB of ram at DDR2 667mhz. the ram is cheap, you can buy it new for about 12 bucks a gig. the HD will take any sata, they are also cheap; 500gb is only about 50 bucks new. it has a PCI-E slot so you can install a better graphics card if you want or need. may need a bigger PSU for any high end card tho. i can not find any info on raid but its a safe assumption that raid is not available on this MB. it has 2 ram slots so you need 2 1gig sticks. you can upgrade from xp to 7 dont buy vista. you will need to format your comptuer tho so getting a backup HD or installing your new HD as primary and keeping your current as a backup drive would be just fine.
