    Would there be any performance gain in XP upgrading from 1gb ddr to 2gb ?
    Is there anything to change eg cache file? Ta

    Be smoother, and less paging to Hard Drive.
    But its probably only noticable in games.

    I didn't notice any performance difference in general Windows usage, but it made games like BF2 noticeably better:)

    If you use lots of memory hungry apps you will probably find its better... If I'm doing music editing work I find it has made my PC a bit faster:)

    you could consider getting rid of your swap file. There's a chance that you might get a couple of crashes if you're using very hungry apps/games but most stuff never touches the 2GB limit.
