Possible to upgrade?
Any system can be upgraded, just depends on how much money you want to spend, and what format you wish to choose. Systemax systems were not bad systems. New motherboards (MB) allowing the latest CPU, and memory configurations are possible in any box, providing the power supply can handle the load. What type of OS comes into play, as unix based alternatives are growing daily with users exploring that option. Most of the world uses Microsoft OS's, and yes your system can but upgraded to use Vista if need be. I build PCs and normally use a brand new box to start with. State of the art gaming or business apps, your system is already out dated the minute it was made. New this or that comes out at top dollar. Is it necessarry to have every option and gadget? Usually not, so tell your builder what you plan to do with the PC and let them put together the machine built to YOUR liking. Hard Drives are light years from the 10 MB behemoths of the 80's, the terabyte drives of today are under $100. If the data is on your old hard drive, it can be ported over to the new system so you don't lose the precious pictures of you and yours from way back when. It comes down to what you want and what options are available at the time you make up your mind. Chances are, if money isn't a question, you'll end up with a new machine. You can get the data off the old PC, and then can give your old system to a friend or relative and they can learn on it. Or you can gut the old systemax box and put in new power supply, dvd burners, MB, memory, CPU, TB HD, new multi option a: drive with card readers, the latest in graphics cards. All the buzzes and whistles, liquid cooling if you so prefer. What ever floats your boat, just comes down to how much money you want to spend and how elaborate you want your system. But to answer your question, anything can be upgraded.
