I don't know much about computers besides that I'm using a Dell and it's slow as hell. I was thinking what are the stuff like gigabytes or ect that make a computer go faster. I know for internet I need high speed internet but what do I need for a faster computer. I like to listen to a lot of music so I want to download songs, I may want a CD burner so what is a good one, and what makes the computer go faster the bus drive or whatever? I need help because I'll probably get another computer.

If you're getting a new computer, then get lots of RAM to make it faster. And to speed up what you have, defragment it, run disk cleanup and scan for viruses. Lots of tools can be found Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools.

add to your RAM.. but i don't know why your even asking if your going to get a new computer...

Well if your going to be storing a lot of music, you will want a fairly large harddrive. Increasing RAM will speed up your computer too. Just make sure that you have some form of spyware and virus scanner/protection. And running defrags, clean up, and error checking helps too.

oh yea.

But I would suggest a least 1 gig ram. 512mb is kinda low. Plus it all depends on what you want to spend on the comp. I built my own (see above specs) and that one was a little less than $1000. Since the quad-core is out now, you can get dual-cores for about $100 if you know where to look. It also depends on whether or not you plan on playing games on it. For the newer games you generally want a really nice comp because the minimum requirements for current games can be a tad high. And you always want to be a little over the minimums. Whatever you decide to do, STAY AWAY FROM VISTA. Wait until they work the bugs out.

RAM speeds up the rate of which your computer processes things.
and yes, i agree, stay far far far away from vista.

Weird. I have a 500 Gig hard drive, 2 gig of RAM, and a 4200 (soon to be a 5600!!!), but I have a 7950 GX2
