Doubling your RAM will be the best way to get a real performance boost on the cheap. Make sure it is the right kind of ram though......

Well, it's SDRAM, so I'd need to go eBay or something for that. It'd be dirt cheap though.

your RAM won't be dirt cheap. New RAM is cheap, outdated stuff is expensive as hell....I know it's strange but I know for a fact that I spent more money on RAM for my mom's ancient machine for 256 than it cost to throw a gig chip into my laptop which is fairly new and laptop RAM is more expensive than Desktop RAM typically (new RAM that is)Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17

I've just had a quick look on eBay and it seems that 128mb pc100 or pc133 sdram goes frm about £1 to £12. That seems reasonably cheap to me

Matt, I understand that you have ubuntu, but for that machine I would put Puppy into it and never look back! OTOH you may want to just look here
