    Well My current system stats are:

    MS Windows XP

    AMD Athlon Processor

    1100 MHZ (Megahertz)

    1700 XP+

    255MB RAM

    NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 40


    I wanted to upgrade my RAM to 500+ and get a better sound card.

    Would you recommnd getting a upgrade or buying a new P.C./Laptop all together?

    That depends on how fast the AMD CPU is and if you have DDR RAM or not.

    It depends on what type of apps you use. If you're a gamer, the vid card and memory are anemic. If you're just web-surfing, no changes are required. BTW, it would helpful to include your CPU speed.

    I'm a casual computer user. Don't play games just surf the web. I editted and put the rest of my P.C.'s stats there. I use a lotof programs like ABC, MSN Messenger, Firefox and Photoshop and my P.C. goes pretty slow so I was wondering if I should upgrade it but I'm not to sure at the moment :{

    Well I still don't know if that is DDR RAM but if you don't game then adding more RAM would be a wise upgrade. Another 256 MBs.

    Yeah as VirtualBody said, getting atleast a 512 mb ram would be a smart idea. The reason that your computer goes kind of slow , is because of the ram, you basically need to get a higher one...

    yes, RAM will do, but trust me, processor is as important (if not more in some situations) as RAM. i'd get both if i had the money, but for now go w/ 256 mb RAM @ PC3200 or 2100
