What should I upgrade to make my computer quicker?

To be honest, it doesn't look like you can upgrade it much further than you already have. The cheapest & most effective upgrade is usually ram but you've already maxed that out. I doubt the processor will be upgradeable by much & probably not worth the trouble anyway. The only thing I can suggest is to backup anything you want to keep, wipe the drive and do a fresh installation of Windows - this always speeds things up at least for a while!
Apart from that, you're looking at a new computer. Dells tend to be fairly proprietry so won't be easy to replace the motherboard & keep the case for example. Also, once you upgrade the mobo, you're looking at new memory, new processor & probably new video card/PSU & possibly even hard drive. So basically, a new computer...

I just had a quick question. I was curious if I could upgrade my processor and how I would find out how to do that? How much money are you looking on spending. Also how would I figure out the best and fastest processor I could get?

Although Dell don't mention this, I'm assuming that this means your processor is a socket 478 (due to the fact that the motherboard has an Intel 845GV chipset). This means your best bet of getting a cpu is probably second hard from Ebay or somewhere similar. Unfortunately, Dell don't specify which cores are supported at this speed but it's probably the Prescott.
If you want to upgrade the processor to anything faster than this, then you're looking at a new motherboard etc etc
