I use my computer 95% on the 'net. Other than that, I do some work at home (word processing and spreadsheets), my daughter uses it for school and AOL Instant Messaging and thats about it. So, my primary concern is the investment research I do on the 'net (and, since you want me to be honest, I play cards on the 'net also...but don't tell my boss). I hope to soon change my ISP to a high-speed provider. With this in mind, what specs should I look for in a new system?

With that in mind, I don't think I would add mem. until I found a program I wanted that required more.

You may need to upgrade your modum, but I think that would be about all. Well, your video card, but someone else already said that.
