Life gets MUCH worst then having someone telling you they have a better computer then you. You don't see Camers crying, because you have a computer that will run circles around his. Take a look at his specs.

If you just want to upgrade your computer for your own satisfaction, then I would suggest the following two solutions.
1. Upgrade the RAM to at least 512MB
2. Get yourself a video card like ATI 9600 or better. They run about $100.
P.S. Moving the harddrive within your computer really makes your computer faster. No, do you actually believe that?
