I am not really very computer literate

My PC at home (a Compaq Presario) currently is partitioned into a 7.35 GB main drive and a 2 GB backup. Both are practically full. Our needs have changed in the last few months, as Fergal has discovered games and I have discovered, cough, archived videos. We've had it for just over five years.

Is there hope? Can I add much extra memory to it without having to resort to buying a new machine? If I do get a new computer, is it worth while considering getting one that I can just plug into the existing peripherals (printer, monitor/microphone, speakers)?

Your advice is welcome.

TBH, my advice is just buy a new machine. You can get rock-solid desktops from Tesco for E600ish at the moment and that'll give you a faster main processor with more cache memory. That's about E400 more than you'll pay for a new hard drive and new memory alone, but if you can afford it I'd go for it.
