Yea if I made the PC I need then we are talking $10,000+ >__<
but for now I just want something from this decade :lol:

my current PC is from 2005 and is decent but it makes very loud fan noise and gets very hot plus its very slow even with a fresh install of a OS

furthermore it does not have PCI-E slots and is a single core x86 celeron D at 2.93Ghz with 1GB RAM
and yes I know 2005 just barely counts as this decade ;)

if you would like I can post a screenshot of the system information

Yeah fate, more system detail would help, also a more definitive description of what you would like it to be capable of.

Looking at the specs for that Compaq, a Cpu or memory u/g would give some increase in speed, but not a lot, it supports quite low speed ddr1 only.
Switching to a lean version of linux would probably dramatically increase the speed, cost - $0 - have you considered that option ?

I know use Puppy or similar but as much as I <3 Puppy Linux I don't want to use it as a Main OS
but anywho I will be buying JD's PC and then once it gets here I will spend a few weeks installing Arch Linux

I've done it before on this computer but did not think it was worth my time on such a old PC
(installed and configured KDE + KDM but stopped there)

Problem solved then, a replacement was probably the best way to go. Happy new PC !
