AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-53 1.70 GHz
1 gb RAM
32 bit Vista Ultimate
ATI Radeon Xpress 1170 (or the like)
(more info about the card I dug up:
Total Available Graphics Memory: 319 MB
Dedicated Video Memory: 128 MB
System Video Memory: 0 MB
Shared System Memory: 191 MB)
Now, my OS doesn't run nearly as slow as it should, since I did a lot of tweaks to optimize it.
However, I figured with only about 800 or so RAM to play around with, there are times my computer will get sluggish, mainly when I start multitasking or starting up games.
Since I'm planning on buying a new laptop next summer, I've been advised by my friends to not bother spending $70~ on extra RAM. Thus, I'm curious if spending $20-30 on a Readyboost USB Flash Drive would help (after getting the new laptop, I'd just use the drive for storage since I've read it doesn't really help once you have 2 gb RAM)
Seeing a speed boost would be nice, but it's not life-or-death.
EDIT: HDD is most likely 5400 RPM, with about 45 GB for available use (other part is allocated for RECOVERY)
