You could try adding more RAM, but be aware that your 32-bit operating system will only recognise 3.25 GB max.
Another $53.00 just to get 1.25 more Ram would that be worth the investment?

Thanks, for you comments!

It would help when you open several programs simultaneously. Don't expect doubling of speed though ...
I would invest in memory rather than digital graphics card, if it was my system.

With a Digital Graphics Card, would'nt that give me a better picture? Or is it just a watse or money?

Even though my PC is ten years old, it's still runs great. The only part I've had to replace is the Power supply about 4 years ago. I only use it to surf the Internet, and play music.

The TV card is analog, so it does'nt work anymore since TVs went digital. And I don't use the modem card, either. Should I remove them? Would that help the system run better?

Thanks, for your help!

Yes, digital graphics card would improve contrast and therefore sharpness - a plus, if picture quality is important (such as photo editing etc.). I have two computers still running XP Pro with no complaints.

Removing the TV card and modem would help the system (it doesn't have to keep checking if it's in 'ready' mode. Keeps the inside compartment cool too!).

Might be helpful to check the BIOS to see if RAM is being shared with video. A new graphics card with onboard RAM may not only give you a better display, but also free up RAM for the CPU.

For your stated purposes of "surf the Internet, and play music" I doubt you would see any difference with a new video card. More memory wouldn't be much help in those activities either.

If it was my money, I'd save the $53 towards my next system.

Thanks, for all the advice!

I pulled out the modem and analog TV cards, as suggested.

Staying with the amount of memory I have, as suggested.

Still considering buying a digital graphics card for my new monitor.
