My computer is pretty old and slow (but my computer repairer told me that it is fast for its age), but I can't afford to buy a new one. I mainly only need to use it for surfing the internet, watching movies and DVDs, and burning DVDs (I won't be playing any games - I'm trying to cut down ). I'd like to know how I can upgrade its components to make it faster and not freeze as often, but I don't know much about computer hardware... What I do know about my computer: - Its brand is "HP Vectra VE" - 4GB hard drive (I want to upgrade to a larger one of this too - not too big though, as I already an 80GB external hard drive for my downloads) - Windows XP - Intel Pentium MMX processor - 128MB RAM - 200 MHz (I've just bought a DVD burner which needs a minimum of 400MHz - I don't know what this is, but I need 2x as much more!) - 50x CD and 8x4x32 CDRW I plan to buy my components from eBay. Thanks in advance for any help!
