More ram will help, winXP runs much better at 512mb or more. Also cleaning out all your temporary file, internet cache, defragging your HD. Also scan for spyware, adware, viruses and repair what you find.
IMO one of the best places to buy ram is Crucial (www.crucial.com) they also have a program where you can look up your computer and it will tell you want ram to use.

make sure you ground yourself before messing around inside the case and the ram just touch the bare metal of the case first that should discharge any static electricity.
i just barfed a motherboard supposedly through static discharge.
don't know for sure . better safe than sorry.
