Default All round system upgrades


Ive come accross quite a few occasions where i have 1% memory left on my comp, its 11% now with pretty much all useless junk deleted or uninstalled completely. i was wondering about an external harddrive to boost the memory. My P.C's capacity at the moment is 37.24GB.

my comps specs are:

Dell dimension dim2300

Intel (R) Pentium (R)

4 CPU 1.80GHz

512 MB of RAM

The other thing i was thinking about was RAM, im pretty sure only have 2 slots for RAM and there both taken with 2 256's. I might be wrong but im thinking having a bit more RAM knocking about would boost by P.C's overall speed, as it does lag on a few games, e.g. Battlefield 2, but that does have high req's. would you know what to look out for?

Im lead to think that graphics card help with speed on movies, games, stuff like that. ive got a nvidea GeForce FX 5200. Is that worth upgrading at all?

Would you have any reccomendations on Upgrades or things to look out for?

Thanks all
