I also use it when I have friends come over and their kids need to play with a computer.

I only take a HDD from an old computer when I know the hardware is useless to me. other then that I try to keep them alive as long as possible, good luck with whatever you decide.
Well, after researching everything I could do the HP tower to max out everything speed and memory wise, I decided to just keep the 30 gig Seagate and s-can the rest. No matter what I would do, my daughters unused, 1 year old dual core Acer Netbook would be better, faster and stronger thus more cost effective in the long run. So buh-bye Hp Pavillion.

Thanks again for the advice Dawdler.
