Sometimes the virtual memory running low and i unable to run game(ie: FIFA 2006) ...So I decide to upgrade my computer as my budget not enough to get a new set of pc at this moment... :flowers:

That motherboard has three expansion slots and will take a maximum of 256MB per slot or PC133. Your motherboard will not support DDR2.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

save your money unless you can find some used ram pulled from other obsolete computers

that's the old old first style

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I sure hope you mean 80 gig Seagate. I got a computer older than that., Ubuntu runs decent on it When's the last time you did any house cleaning? Try removing old programs, do some malware scans and maybe a Hijack This log. If possible, a fresh install of the OS can do wonders

That computer is old enough that a eight GB hdd would not be unheard of.
