    Wink Need to replace parts??

    I built my computer about 3 1/2 years ago (I will put the specs of it at the bottom). It has inevitably started to slow down and I am now starting to get into some video editing on Premiere and also wanting t use After Effects but my computer doesn't really like it because it starts to run really slow when i try to use them. I was wondering if it is possible to just replace certain parts to make my computer "good as new" if possible.

    Thanks ~~Sam

    Upgrade RAM to at least 2 GB (3 GB max unless use 64bit OS).
    Upgrade video card to at least 256 MB dedicated memory (512 MB preferred).
    Optmize Windows by disabling unneeded services and startup apps.
    The above will be more than enough to run the apps you want w/ minimal slows.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
