Unhappy i have 2 problems (ram or processor) & (plz i need these programs)

1- i have a pc processor intel p4 2.4 celeron cache 256k and 256 mb DDram bus 400 and a VGA Nvidia MSI FX 5200 all on motherboard MSI 865 PE NEO2 .. i always had a problem in any software or games loading in my pc .. it takes longer time than at my friends' pc although they have less megahertz but pentium not celeron .. i asked many people and they tell me that because i have a celeron .. i used to have and old pc p4 1.7 256k cache and 256 SDram before and i remember it was faster than that in loading .. i dont know whats going on i mean i pay more and get less .. i got need for speed : most wanted and it is working very good in the middle of the game and graphics is perfect .. but when it is loading it takes really long time like 5 or 10 min. and sometimes i have to restart my pc .. please help me i want to know if the problem is the celeron processor or it is the RAM ? i cant get any new games that way cause they're too slow (i mean when windows xp starts for example it takes like 20 25 rounds before it enters .. thats tooo slow compared to other slower computers) .. please help me ..

1.Pentiums are better than Celeron's, I have a Celeron 2.4Ghz and it sucks. Your Processor AND your RAM is the problem.

2.You need to buy the programs, we cant give the full versions to you legally. www.macromeida.com for the 3rd one. Google the others.

Intel Q6600 2.4Ghz SLACR
eVGA 8800GT 512mb Video Card

OK. 256MB of RAM is killing you. I'm pretty sure your mobo support dual channel RAM. Best advice, upgrade to a minimum of 512MB, preferably a gig.

A 2.4 Celeron is slow, especially since Intel guts the cache on 'em. The best you can slap in htere is a 3.4E Prescott (major heat issues, so go with better cooling) or a Pentium M 765 Dothan (2.1GHz). The difference between them is about $150.

Also, go here:
Read and follow all five steps listed. That ought to help as well.


As to your second problem... I dunno.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
