Default Making my PC run faster

I only got 2 PCI slots and i don't even think that the processor can be upgraded so anything to make it run faster I don't need gaming faster but it would be preferable but I'd at least like to hear from people who know what their talking about that my computer just sucks too much

post your system specs first so we can give you ideas on what to do with what you have.

a pci vid card would take the graphics load off your processor and that would help. more memory would help too.
what are your specs

I would definitely add another 512MB RAM. That will make your PC must faster, and RAM is cheap. It might cost you $50 for a new RAM stick.

If you can't afford that, you could always check my signature for great programs to make your PC run faster.
