I presume you mean the hard drive is 80GB. You will need a minimum of 256MB of RAM to start to get the best out of XP.

Sounds as though the system needs tweaking to get the best out of it. A defrag would help for a start.

I've got XP Pro, a modest 400MHz Celeron, 256MB of RAM and a 60GB HDD, plus a dial up connection, and overall it's more than quick enough as far as I'm concerned.
