How to make my desktop faster ?

  Stan 1 15:13 21 Jul 2009

I am wanting to speed up my PC and need to know the best way to do this. I have a 1.61GHz AMD Sempron processor with 512 MB of RAM.
My PC is used for E-mail and occasional internet use and the odd photo download.
Am I right in thinking it would be better to change the whole motherboard or will my PC run quicker if I just increase the RAM to 2GB. Not sure of slot setup.
Any help is appreciated.

If you're on XP, 1Gb would be OK for what you want. run the Crucial scanner click here. Will give you a good idea of what can be fitted. Good company to deal with, too.
