I have attached a few pictures of what I am working with.
My grandfather just wants to upgrade this DESKTOP ...its really old but we wanted to make a few upgrades. These were the upgrades that I am considering
1) The Hard Drive (how to change this to SSD) I believe this is a Serial ATA Internal Hard Drive. I am looking at using the existing desktop hook ups to install a SSD with Windows 7 on it.
2) Also would like to upgrade this RAM. I have two slots left.
Is this the correct RAM?
2GB PC6400 DDR2-800MHz PC2-6400 240PIN DIMM Desktop Memory RAM
3) Is there anything else I can upgrade or should upgrade?
I am on a budget for him and just trying to help out. I knew you guys would have the answers. I love this place and the great advice.

would this be something I can use?
That would do, but it's an old drive and you're not getting much value for money (high cost per gigabyte).
I'd just go for this: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B00KFAGD88/
They're cheap, high quality, reliable, fast, ... Should you ever move the HDD in a few years you'll be better off with this. And 60GB might just be a little tight at some point if you're going to have some photos on there for example. And it's just much better value.
