How can I breath new life into my pc

Hello Hello wonderful people I have a simple question. I have a really old dusty laptop that is my main pc I got 5 years ago and in about 7 months I will be upgrading to a possible macbook of my choice . But untill then I will have to deal with the maschine I currently have I am trying to make 3d animations and it is a pain on this machine my system specs are listed in my profile. What settings could I potentially tweak or retail parts could I purchase to make my slow pc run a little faster and survive till I get me my macbook thanks. Some of my main concerns is how slow programs open and how frequently unresponsive it is I understand that this is old hardware. But o well you do what you gotta do.

The cpu is slowing things down, nothing you can do about that, did you max out the memory ?

Like I said I plan on purchasing a new pc. Just to give me an idea of what I want in the new pc or what parts I need to do what I wanted. I have a question. Would my pc be fine with all the parts it has if it had a faster processor

Since you're getting a new PC, I wouldn't worry about buying any new parts for the current one unless you just wanted to. You could do the other tweaks to help performance as much as possible for now.

I'm just curious: would there be interest to create a Second Life community for friends of SevenForums? I know this forum is already taking a lot of time for some of us, maybe a place to meet virtually would be too much. I suspect my wife would sue me for negligence ;) if I'm going to be even...
