  1. We would need a description of your system.

    <font color=blue>You're posting in a forum with class. It may be third class, but it's still class!</font color=blue>
  2. Yah, if your mother board supports only SDRAM, then get a new mobo with either DDR or RD RAM. If you are already running DDR or RD RAM then up the speed of it to wherever you get the best preformance. For this step it is probably good to do some research and find out which speed of RAM is best for your Mobo as most people aren't going to go out and by a stick of each speed and see which one is the best bang for your buck.
    If you have RDRAM make sure you buy it in pairs.

    Unless you are doing video editing 512 MB is enough RAM for most people.

    That is about as much as I can tell you without knowing your system.

    In a world without <font color=red>walls </font color=red>or <font color=green>fences </font color=green>, what use have we for <font color=red>Windows </font color=red>or <font color=green>Gates.</font color=green>
