Ok....my pc is almost 5 years old.  Here's the specs...

 eMachine W3080

3000+ AMD Atholn XP Processor

512 mb RAM

I added a 2nd HD 3 years ago that went belly up last month....

In March 2007 my main HD went belly up and I replaced it with a 320 gig that my BIOS doesn't support and can only use 137 gigs of it unless I put a SATA adapter thingie in it, which the guy who put the HD in could have told me about  in March!

Upgraded the Video card 2 years ago to a 128 mb NVIDIA card.....

Added recordable DVD drive 2 years ago too.

 NOW...here's my question.  its behaving badly.....sometimes now it won't recognize cd/dvd drive....its getting slower and slower and I mean it is technically almost 5 years old......

 Should I spend more money on this machine as in the SATA adapter, more RAM (can go up to 2 gigs), bigger video card.......

 Or should I let it be and look into getting a new pc for Christmas?
