PC slows down when internet used heavily

  Jug Ears 05:10 23 Feb 2010

My PC is an Advent T9317.

Basically when i go online i often use a number of pages, and also bring up online consoles. This seems to slow my computer down a lot.

Im not sure whether thats is to do with RAM or ROM lol. But basically id like any advice on the reason why this happens and also what i can do to speed it up.

Id like to get another PC but one that will be able to handle the internet use. What kind of things should i be looking for in a new PC? Im guessing its to do with in-running memory.

Be grateful for any advice, and apologies if i come across like an IT idiot.

Could be RAM. If you're not sure how much is fitted or how much your MB can take, download the Crucial scanner click here.
