I have on old PC
- Celeron 1.7 GHz, 128 kB cache
- 128 MB DDR1 RAM
- Intel D845GVAD2 mother board

Of late it has become slow

My applications are simple
- Internet
- DVD play back
- MS office

Will it help if I upgrade RAM to 512 MB ?
or it is of no use ?

Must I buy a new PC ?

If that is all you do, upgrading the RAM will help extend the life of your system a little longer.

But sooner or later, you will need a new system. And that probably will be when you get tired of the long boot times as the OS loads, then the antivirus software loads, and the firewall loads, and the ...

You get the idea.
