Max out the ram, if possible, or at least increase it to 1Gb or better.(Go to crucial.com to use their scanner or memory advisor to see what's possible for your system.) Make sure virtual memory &/or swap files are set up correctly. Use the system configuration utility to see what's running at every startup, and use the task manager to see what processes are running in the background.
Minimize the number of applications that run at startup, deselect unnecessary services and avoid security suites and other AV programs that may be resource hogs, sticking with reliable but lighter apps like Eset's NOD32, etc.
You don't mention whether you're on xp or vista, but go to MS's help and how-to site and search performance for your OS, and you'll get access to a wealth of information about how to tweak your setup to make the most of it's ram.
If you set it up correctly, take out the trash, (keep temp files from growing too large, etc), keep it defragged, and minimize the number of nonessential programs installed into memory, you'll have plenty of speed to keep things humming along.
See useful links here and here and here and here for xp or here for vista
