PC is too slow cant run dual displays or videos without lagging!

i have an Intel Core2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz with a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 with 2 gb RAM.

I would like to know if i could just buy another 2gb RAM to improve the the computers perfomance.

  1. No - RAM in this system will not help much. The lagging is likely a result of poor graphics card(that you did not list) and only 2 cores running relatively slow. Save your money for a mobo/RAM/GPU upgrade.

  2. while i agree with the post above, i think that nowadays 4gb should be the minimum
  3. Your motherboard will take lots of newer faster socket 775 cpus - check the list here:

    You should be able to pick up a Q8xxx or Q9xxx quad core cpu cheaply on ebay for example. If you can get some extra 1GB DDR2 memory cheaply then that would help as well.

    775 cpus are way over priced for what they are - replace is the best option with newer cpu/mobo.
