Upgrading your memory is one of the most worthwhile upgrades you can do to your pc for a little amount of money.

In your case, as you do alot of work with image editing and graphics. I would recommend this as your first beginners upgrade. very worthwhile.

a memory upgrade in most cases gives the best price to performance increase. Things you need to find out, motherboard spec (to know what memory to buy), rating of current 256 mb (i.e. is it 2100, 2700) and to make sure that you have a spare memory slot.

I would advise installing the memory yourself, as it is very easy, or alternatively if u want someone to do it, a local pc store. Look to pay around £40 for the upgrade at store (labour and parts). If u decide to install yourself recommend crucial memory. click here
