add more memory i think your pc has 3 memory slots and it supports up to
Max. 3GB PC2700/PC2100/PC1600 non-ECC DDR DRAM Memory

You are right about the memory slots! at the moment i have two bays occupied with 2xcrucial 512meg 2700mhz ram. do you not think that this is enough for my needs?

I have a p4 2.4 compaq presario 6000 that i use for video work/dvd
it only has 512mb of memory
yours shouldent be any trouble with dvd/video i would say your memory was plenty
what amount of time are you talking about when copying file to dvd
if burning to dvd i find x4 to x8 is plenty as you will get less errors the slower you burn to disc
well i find that

tends to take about 2.5 hours to burn from an avi file, but i cant carry on workin cos it slows everything right down. unless i change the priority of the burning of course!
