I do a lot of graphic design using Photoshop and Illustrator CS3 and lately my computer is crawllllling when I try to use it. I know I need more RAM but I was wondering if you all could look at my configuarion and let me know what I should upgrade or change to get better performance as related to graphic design? I know only a little about hardware so I could really use your help. Thank you so much in advance!
Here's the info I could gather from the computer, some you may need or some you may not but I wasn't sure, if you need more please let me know where to find it and I will!! Thank you so much.
