Ok, the first thing is your Hard drive. The speedup with getting a newer faster hardrive is on the computer's boot time, program load time and data transfer rates.

The second thing is memory, this will increase the speed of running programs once they've loaded.

Standards these days are between 512MB and 1GB of ram and 80GB SATA Hard drives.
