  1. I only use my computer for gaming, and it seems really bogged down. My buddy built the computer for me back in 2008 and i just started to update some things. The OS is a bootleg version of Windows XP so i cant automatically do updates. Is there anything I can do to make my computer run faster then what it is right now. I also have no graphics card i just run on board video. Any suggestion's on what i can do or comments are welcome.

    Here is my computer in a nutshell.
