Try adding more memory to your system I recommend that you at least have 512mb of RAM to your system if you what it to run smoothly.

Before you get up to your elbows into the case, keep in mind that you're handling sensitive electronic circuitry that can be damaged if handled improperly The biggest enemy is static electricity, so be sure to touch an unpainted grounded piece of metal before proceeding The safest way to stay grounded is to leave the powerchord plugged into the back of your PC, leave the other end plugged into a power strip, plug the power strip into a wall outlet, and turn the powerstrip off This way there is no power going to the PC, but the PC is grounded, and touching an unpainted part of the case will dissipate any static electricity
