I recently added a second monitor to my system and installed a 64MB graphics card for this purpose. My original (integrated card) is 32MB. Since installation I have noticed significant slowing in my computer and occasional freezing when many applications are open. Can I fix this with:
More RAM?
More graphics memory?
A better processor?
Other?

I use WinXP Home, 2.3 GHz processor, 512 RAM.

You specs should more than sufficient for what you are trying to do. What I would suggest is that you try to find the newest drivers available for your video cards and update them and see if that helps
