Going from single channel to dual channel memory will have very little affect on your computer. You would have to run benchmarks to even see a it won't be clearly noticeable.

Going to an SSD is a definite noticeable upgrade. Everything is snappier, and the system runs cooler and uses less power, which would lengthen your battery life.

Upgrade my hardware
I have a Pentium 4 @ 2.8ghz The spec sheet says I can have up to 4gb ram (4 slots available) It says I have 2 IDE connectors & 2 Sata connectors. If I upgrade the ram to the 4gb & get a 200gb SATA HD, will that make a pretty decent computer to use Windows 7 on ?
