If your logic board is working I would look at first maxing out the RAM to 3.0 GB and then upgrading the drive to either a SSHD or SSD. The one thing you do need to be careful is making sure the drive you go with runs at SATA I (1.5 Gb/s). As an example:

* Seagate FireCuda SSHD
* Samsung 860 EVO
SSD
Both of these drives support SATA I (1.5 Gb/s) make sure whatever drive you get lists it on the spec sheet like these. If it doesn’t its not able to work reliably in your system.
