    toss that anchor and get something new. Sony Vaio's are just horrid, horrid computers.

    More memory is always a good, fast, cheap peformance boost for a computer. Just make sure you have an open RAM slot, if not you will have to take one out when you add the new one.

    Yeah, Vaios are crap. Save money, increase performance, build your own. :)

    Here is Sony's site for your computer.

    http://esupport.sony.com/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=PCVRS430G

    Going by the specs it looks pretty decent. I guess if you are really into gaming you could upgrade the video card.

    If I were you, first I would focus on making sure the computer is free from spyware. A lot of times people have so much crap running in the background that it makes their computer almost unusable.

    Since you were asking about memory, here is some RAM that will work for you.
