I have 4 questions:

1. What is the maximum RAM that I can install on this PC?
2. What is the maximum HDD that I can install on this PC? (Somebody told me p4 won't take 500GB well)
3. Is my HDD IDE or SATA?
4. Can I add a graphics card to this system ?(It already has onboard graphics)

1. 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) requires the replacement of the installed 256 MB DIMM

2. I think you can install as much as u like :) as u got 4 sata ports and 2 ide ports u can add about 5 different HDDs, for this you may have to upgrade your smps. Sorry I dont know about the relation between p4 and HDD.

3. remove your side cover and look.

4. Yes you have got pcie slot on your board you can add any latest graphics card, but only one.

I think (but haven't checked) got the same machine. I upgraded memory to 3 gig and then went win 7 32 and then 64 bit. It goes like the wind and is much more stable. So if youare looking for speed and stability new hard disks willgive you more storage but probably not alot more speed whereas win 7 64 or linux will give speed as they make better use of speeding up data transfer using all the resources and not just half as in 32!

You might find that your computer is able to support an installation of 4 GB memory. However, this maximum memory might be limited by the operating system not being able to address the full range of physical memory
However, winXP is fine with 2GB RAM
