I was wondering what can I upgrade on my comp to make it faster?
Comp is getting slower each day and i still have so many problems with Vista Ultimate.

Current Set up:
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9450 (12M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)
Mobo: Intel® Desktop Board DX38BT
Ram: 4gb DDR3
Gfx Card: Asus Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2
HD: 500gb Seagate, i dont think its that great
PSU: Antec 1000W

Something wrong with my set up that makes vista take up so much memory?
Or any tips on making vista faster?
Please input.

There is no reason that this hardware would be slow other than Windows itself (and/or the applications on it) being the cause.

Basically; no upgrade on this system will fix your slowness. Your solution most likely is to figure out what's causing your problems and possibly you may need to install Windows clean (format and reinstall), apply updates and service packs, install antivirus/security software and then start installing your regular software.

You can also google for Services in Vista that are not necessary. There are many services that are Automatic in default and could be either Manual or disabled. This will not get you a whole lot of speed but every little bit helps.

If you do not need it, turn off your Aero package. That uses a lot of CPU.

Good luck.
