I have a D-Link motherboard (around 3 years old) supporting a 1.2Ghz Celeron Processor and 256 MB SD Ram! HAve a 40 GB IDE HDD! How can I improve its performance with respect ti 1) Hardware (Not too expensive since money is a prob) 2) Software (with respect to OS's etc... but I want to run hi-fi stuff on it: Egs MS Office 2007 etc.......) Was considering addin 128 MB Ram and installng XP but still havent made a decision of Home Edition vs Professional! Its a PC not networked so I dont really knw in wat way Professional will benefit me! Also I'm started my course in Computer Engineering so I need performance boosts! In general I need a computer makeover! HELP!!!!!!
