i have a 2.66ghz P4, audigy 2, radeon 9600 se, 256mb of pc2700 RAM, and am running windows 98 se. why do my system resources never get any higher than 70%, even though i turn everything off? will more RAM help this? does this sound normal?

Don't sweat it. 70% is actually very good--you'll never get to 100% because Windows uses resources, in the case of XP--lot's of them.

Adding another 256MB of RAM would be a good investment. 512MB is optimal for Windows XP.

An upgade to Windows XP will help everything. You'll be very impressed.
