While that is the best way to get better performance, that means a total
renewal of the system. There aren't (just guessing) many cpus that fit
into the socket of an old 1.8 GHz processor...
To have a new processor (dual core, for instance) it will be necessary
to have a new motherboard and memory too. That leaves, from the current
system, just the hard drive. And, might as well, if you are buying, buy
a new one as well. Just keep the old computer and get a new one. Perhaps
you could do some kind of server on it just to do calculations...
Although this would be the best way to ensure a good experience in
docking and other programs, this means spending much more money than
just getting a low performance dedicated graphics card... If you have
the money, go for it. Otherwise, I'd settle for now with a better
graphics card and later a new system.
