well my school friend said the ram won't do much, he said it was all down to the graphics card. Its a prety old graphic card.

If I get more ram will 1GB be ok?

What you need to understand is that a single component of hardware doesn't determine the entire speed of the machine. You're only as fast as your slowest bottleneck, and the key is to eliminate that. In your case, your RAM is a major bottleneck, so you're going to need to upgrade that to at least 1 gigabyte. Your old video card is probably another bottleneck. Upgrade that. Eventually you'll get to the point where the cost of upgrading components to eliminate all the bottlenecks becomes so great that it would be cheaper to just buy a new computer, so use discretion when upgrading parts in your computer.
