  1. Hi. Since my computer performance is not being so good lately, I figure I should update some of the old parts in it to newer and better ones. So in this thread I need people to tell me what I should upgrade (video driver, sound driver, RAM), what should I upgrade it with ( RAM company, prefer 1GB sticks), and the price. I think that my system specs I am going to post below should help you identify what kind of ram I can use. I like to play a lot of video games, so I don't know if 2 RAM sticks both 1GB from different companies, then one will have better performance than the other.
