Upgrading my workstation; Suggestions?
I've been wanting to reduce lag and hopefully improve the speed of my current workstation. Then again, it's not much of a workstation being that I bought it straight off the shelf of Best Buy. I'm rocking an HP Pavillion P6000(exact specs) and I primarily work with Painter 11, Inkscape and SketchBook Pro.
SBP flows smoothly for its simplicity but the other two have a hard time keeping themselves from falling apart when I work on 300dpi documents.
I've thought about sticking 16GB of RAM into it, but then I'm wondering if that'll solve my problem or become a waste. If it's the latter, does anyone else have a better suggestion for an upgrade? I'm open to anything at this point since I'm still saving up till I'm able to build my own rig.
Learn it. Live it. Love it.

Strange, I had a Athlon XP II 250 and even when using the onboard graphics HD4200 every program ran smoothly, granted that single-threaded programs weren't very fast on it since AM3 single-thread performance is quite bad to say the least but they were perfectly usable.
