I know very little about upgrading PC's, but, hopefully someone can help me out.
I'm getting these low virtual memory warnings, ( or something like that)
But that doesn't surprise me. I'm rendering fairly large animations in Blender for export to AVI,
on a PC with 512 MB ram.
I'm looking to upgrade, or tweek my PC.
Would more ram give me more virtual memory?
Can I increase something here to get better performance?

BTW, I already disabled many features, and services following the advise at Blackviper, and BC. That helped quite a bit.
But it's still struggling on some blender scenes.

According to Aida, I have 3 'DIMM' slots, one has 512 MB PC2100 DDR SD RAM, two of which are empty.
How much Ram can this PC handle?
This is one of three PC's that I would like to use as part of a small render. So what can I do to get as much performance out of it as possible?
Thanks in advance.
