From looking at your specs. It looks like you have an IDE 200gb HD now in this desktop. So if you look inside the case & you have a second IDE MB connection and mounting space for another HD, then you could easily add another IDE HD from 200gb to 500gb in size.

Are you running out of HD space, or memory? They are different.

You say you are "almost out of memery" so I am unsure

That would be disk space not memory.
