I am a graphic designer struggling with a question of upgrading or reworking my PC to improve performance. I welcome any recommendations.
I currently have a HP Pavillion, Intel 4, 3 ghz, 140 gig HD (used for system & program files - 65% full), 2 gig RAM. It also has a 2nd internal 240 gig HD (used for document/work files - 50% full).
With XP on the system, I run the Adobe Creative Suite of products, Microsoft Office Pro. I struggle with processing speed and find my system bogged down. With DSL, I wait appx 10 seconds Just to load web pages.
