Hi there, you're going to need to give a lot more info before we can help.

Like specific details of what you have and budget for upgrades.

I don't know much about upgrading Macs but we can find out I guess.

Cheers

Let me see if I can help...

~ Is it a laptop or a desktop?
If its a laptop what does it say right below the center of the LCD?
If its a desktop describe what it looks like?

~ What's running slow?
Are you seeing the spinning wheel?
Do windows close themselves momentarily than reopen?

~ Any specific error messages or weird shapes on the monitor?

As you took longer than 14 days to reply... I didn't catch that you have responded until just now, I have found it manually searching the forums.

Are you still looking for help with this?
