would it be even worth it to spend the $100 to try to upgrade it to what i want or should i start from scratch?
 
 
 
Cuz im debating if i should get the computer or maybe a new sound system



It depends on the specifics of the items it comes with.  It's likely the RAM is slow, HD as well, and an older monitor, low grade MB, etc.
 
Personally I would just start from scratch if you can't find the specific models and specs of everything.  Also depending on how good of a PC you're looking to have in the end.

for a hundo, it would be worth buying jus for the monitor and whatnot
you can always buy it for spare parts



so would you suggest tryin to get it.
 
cuz i got a choice between that, a camera and a new sound system.
 
My sound system is screwed up bad (dropped it down the stairs)


well, if ur going to be building a pc, you would have the accecosories and an extra harddrive, ram isn't too good..

If you're looking to have an atleast decent PC (especially for gaming).  It's unlikely you would even end up using anything it comes with, not even the HD, as it's probably very slow.  Your current one oughta last you another 5 months.
