    My system has been acting funky and seems to have slowed down a lot, even after a re-install. I'm guessing it is just age and the constant running has deteriorated its speed a bit.

    What are some apps/tools I can use to analyze my system to see where there may be issues as well as optimize it?

    1.25GB RAM
    80GB HD (20gb available)
    OSX 10.4.2

    I'm thinking of buying a faster HD or two and some new memory (even though Id prefer to use my surplus, see other thread). But that needs to wait a bit.

    Advice please.

    Is Activity Monitor telling you anything about CPU or RAM hogs (remember to check All Processes, not just My Processes)? Is the hard drive making any strange noises?
