    I assumed you are on XP but are you running Vista? With XP you will see a good improvement with an extra gig and with Vista you will see a HUGE improvement.

    Have you done the other normal stuff to speed the system up? MSconfigAdaware, Spybot and O&O?

    I'm using XP, might upgrade to Vista next year or something, I don't even know the differences between XP and everything else, I just got it this way...

    Well thank you very much Miss Braschlosan!

    You know your computer probably just has two 256MB sticks, so you will probably have to take one out to put another 1GB in....

    If you plan to switch to Vista realize most games are 10-15% slower. Also it uses more ram so that 1.5gb will be necessary.

    I say stick with XP for now because there are some programs/games that dont even work with Vista. If you really want to take advantage of the new ram let me know when you get it and Ill tell you two registry keys that will make it even faster.

    I suggest getting O&O degrag and configuring it to use the layout.ini file and run a "by modified" defrag. This will speed up disk access considerably over the crap built in defragger.

    lol I didn't understand a thing you said in that last paragraph

    I won't be getting the ram for a few months, but I'll let you know when I get it, I'll probably need a lot of help

    Oh hehe. Okay windows keeps track of which files are used and creates a file called layout.ini

    You know what defragging is right? Well this file helps a defragger organize the important files so that your system is really fast. You can get the built in defrag program to adjust the files too but its a pain in the behind.

    If you want I can help you make the system even faster without the ram.
