CPU Speeds these days?

CPU Speed: 1804 MHz
RAM : 1GB

I only use my computer for internet access, updating my ipod, and a football management simulation.

Noticed things have been a bit sluggish lately.

I fancy upgrading my RAM to 3GB to help things along, but if my CPU speed is pretty poor by todays standards, then maybe I'll invest in a new machine altogether.

Your thoughts? Will the extra RAM be beneficial? Or should I put that £100 towards a new machine.

Thanks

click here to clear out junk. I cannot see why you would need a new machine for such basic requirements. What OS are you using?

I'm using Windows XP

for what you are using it for i would say that your current setup should be more than equal to the job you require it to do

as belfman has said a good clean up is all it may need use his link for Ccleaner a very good program indeed also a defrag may help and loosing unwanted start up items may help as well

another 1g of ram will be plenty.

Thanks guys, I'll certainly give that a go. Sounds easier on the wallet :)
