My old pc seems to get hemmed up some of the time. Since buying a new one isn't in the cards at the moment I am considering this ram upgrade: I am currently running 768 mb of ram w/ a 1.6GHz p4 and am considering upgrading to 2gbs of ram. For $77 is it a worthwhile upgrade? Main usage for the pc is office programs, itunes and webatron access.

Thanks in advance,
302X

Hello 302X,

An upgrade of RAM will provide a good boost to the system's performance, however, you may consider upgrading the CPU to a faster model.
Regards,

Alan.

What CPU could I add to my current set up, as a replacement for the current, of course.

RAM upgrades help all around. Just make sure your motherboard can use what you buy. or post make/model of the comp and someone will point you at the right stuff.

If you post the make and model of your computer we can make suggestions on RAM and find out what the options are for upgrading the CPU.

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