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.

My two cents: If it's just extra space you need, an external drive would do well. If you're finding the computer to be not modern enough for your needs and you have the money, consider an upgrade.

You can keep your old monitor, etc, if you upgrade, although if it's particularly old and you use it a lot, your eyes might thank you for buying a better one, perhaps a nice LCD.
