Increasing Computer Speed and Performance

I just downloaded and installed a new theme from Alienware that came with an object dock that uses a lot of RAM and slows my computer down. Do you guys know any quick tips on increasing speed and performance?

More RAM. Less crap using up RAM (like themes/docks). Faster Processor. Less crap using up Processesor cycles.

Do Not go following guides you find on the interwebs to disable services. If you do not know what you are doing, you can severly cripple your system.

Okay, I'm going to go through my files and see what I don't need. I also set disk cleanup and defrag to scheduled tasks so I'll start doing those regularly.
