Should I upgrade the memory in my old computer.

The motherboard manual says :

Memory Bank Configuration

The mainboard supports a maximum memory size of 1 GB. It provides two 168-pin unbuffered DIMMs (Double In-Line Memory Module) sockets. It
supports 8 MB to 512 Mbytes DIMM memory module.

WARNING : There are two kinds of DIMM specification supported by this mainboard: PC133 and PC100. If you use 100MHz CPU Bus Frequency, PC100 DIMM Spec is recommended. If you use 133 MHz CPU Bus Frequency, PC133 DIMM Spec is

I currently have installed 48MB PC133 SDRAM by Samsung

Should it be upgraded?

You will see an improvement in performance by adding memory. If I were you I would try to get hold of a pair of pc133 DIMMS at either 64Mb each or 128Mb each, the latter if you wish to run Windows XP. Win9x does not really need that much but a total of 128Mb will speed things up and see less use of the swap file.

yes, have at least 512mb. Of course you haven't said what you do on your comp, but 512 is a safe bet which gives you abit of leeway.
