    need advice and a little push

    about to purchase dell 1420n. for about $180 can go from 1 GB memory to 4GB memory and from 1.66 GHz/667MHz/2MB cache to 2.2 GHz/800MHz/4MB cache. Every other option I will upgrade also. Question is how bad overkill is this or would it be worth adding for $180. Will be used for surfing,e-mail,photos, and quite a lot for work maintaining telco equipment.
