Please i'm suck on what i should do next, i have an old computer that has been upgraded so many times now but my processing speed is way to slow, i've read up that a new processing chip (the one i like is a 3.2 intel pentium 4 chip 54 from dabs.com) is the way to go and heard from a friend that increasing my RAM (currently only 512mb) will speed my computer up but I only have enough money to do one upgrade, what should i do more random access memory or a better chip (mines only 1.9 at the moment!). Please reply ASAP i need some answers by next week or i'm toast!

:thumbsup: :huh: :huh: B)

IMHO, upgrade your ram, by putting another 512mb in you will see a big difference in speed and the cost is less. If you have 2 slots for ram, just put another 512mb in. :thumbsup:

Upgrading RAM will probably be cheaper and if its WAY to slow then there might be a problem with your computer because I still get around with a computer with a 350mhz processor, also with 512mb RAM.
