I vote for 512mb ram if XP is the operating system. Everything else sounds fine.

nothing ventured.......nothing gained

Looks alright, but if you WERE to upgrade the RAM, I would opt for PC3200 instead of PC2700, before I went to 512mb of 2700. 256mb is enough to run basic applications though.

Yes you do need more ram. I suggest 512mb Ram. Your computer wont like to multitask thats for sure.

Finished With TF.
