Looks like your mother board can handle up to 16GB RAM so I'd install as much as you can afford (at least 8GB.) The Dell SK-8115 is a business keyboard so you might consider a gaming keyboard.

Your power supply is iffy at best when it was new.

Their is no such thing as a quality $50.00 power supply.

Xigmatek NRP-PC502 500W Review


The Good:
  • very efficient
  • doesn't heat up much
  • stable at full power, 49 degrees ambient
The Bad:
  • sloppy voltage regulation compared to past Xigmatek units in this power range
  • failed overshoot transient testing
The Mediocre:
  • too much ripple and noise on the 3.3V
  • some Robin Hoods can't speak with an English accent
------------------------------------------


Here is a list I would suggest to choose from.

If that were my PC I'd be putting in
1. a better power supply
2. more RAM
3. a good anti-virus program
4. a second, larger hard drive for data storage
5. some sort of cooling solution, like case fans
6. at least one DVD burner.

Hey, you asked.

Oh yes of course a SSD like ignatzatsonic suggested and always better cooling. One can not have to much cooking.

None of it really matters until a proper power supply is installed.
The power supply is the heart of the computer.
