Upgrading BOTH my PCs

    Ok i'm thinking of upgrading BOTH of my current pcs, looking at a budget of around 900euros, £600
    PC1:
    Dell-P4 2.8 ghz
    Windows XP
    512ddr (2*256)
    60gbs hd
    Geforce MX440(!)

    PC2:
    AMD Athlon 1Ghz
    Windows ME
    128 SDRam
    20gbs hd
    Geforce MX200 or something stupid(!!)

    upgrades i was thinking of:
    PC1: another 2*256 ddr ram
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=MY-040-CR&NOLOGIN=1
    new graphics card
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=GX-050-LT&NOLOGIN=1


    PC2: new motherboard
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=MB-092-AS&NOLOGIN=1
    new processor
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=CP-053-IN&NOLOGIN=1
    new ram
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=MY-037-CR&NOLOGIN=1
    new hard drive
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=HD-005-WD&NOLOGIN=1
    new graphics card
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=GX-050-LT&NOLOGIN=1
    new operating system
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?PRODREF=OS-001-MS&NOLOGIN=1

    If i'm not a complete nub this would make them both roughly the same spec could anyone who knows anything about PC's have a look at the parts i suggested? any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Edit: key points that i'm not sure about are:
    - if Dell systems support 4 ram cards
    - and if so would the ram i have listed here work with the ram (probably different brand already with my Dell
    - if existing sound card/other things on pc 2 will be compatable with new motherboard given how old it is
    - if all the stuff is compatable
    - if Bahu really knows anything about computers at all
    - if anyone in the world would be stupid enough to buy a used MX440 :)
    - and i just realized i haven't added anything for cooling :(

    Now why would you buy a new operating system? Just install the one you have on the other one. XP cdkeys aint like DAoC keys, they can be shared. I got mine of a internet site that said 500+ people had allready downloaded it.

    IMO mate type all this stuff in technical help you will get a reply shortly after from a very nice Guy called Sycho he knows alot about computers and he can also show you where to get them for cheap, unless you have already made your mind up on them ofc
