I have just bought an Athlon 1300xp pc system and it is slower than my old pentium 1! I think the reason is that it has 128mb ram, and this is shared with 64mb for graphics. Can I allocate less memory for the graphics (say 32mb?), will this have any adverse affect on my system's operations? I would like to investigate this first before considering a RAM upgrade. Looked on the internet but I can't find anything that helps on this subject for the 'layman'. If you anyone out there can give me a few pointers I would be very grateful!

There's no way to allocate less memory without messing around with the video card. Your best bet is to get another 128meg of ram. By today's standards 128meg of ram is minimal. 256meg or more is preferred.
