    I have a P4 2.4GHz 512K 533MHz CPU Northwood P478,
    XFX GeForce TI 4200 128mb DDR AGP 4X or 8X, P4 Titan 667 chipset 845GE motherboard, support 3Ghz and Hyper Threading Technology, DDR 333 support up to 2Gh of DDR 333. Right now i have 512 DDR 266 MHz. I have 2 hardrive, Master 40GB Western Digital ATA 100 7200rpm, and SLAve (this is my new one) Seagate Barracuda 120 GB ATA 100 7200rpm.

    Have you overclocked your memory to see if it will hit 333 speed (take a chance as many can reach it). New memory is probably the cheapest upgrade for your system but also the smallest spped upgrade. I would go for a better graphics card as I think your system would get a bigger boost.:)

    Go into your bios setup and set the memory FSB from 166 to say 175. I would suggest going up 1 mhz at a time and run something like 3dmark to test for stability.
