Your bottleneck is your bus speed. There is nothing you can do about that.

Installing a newer hard drive might help a bit, but (as you noticed) it's 
not the amount of ram, it's the speed of it.

Sorry to put it bluntly, but you're trying to run 2007 software on a 2002 
(?) machine at full speed, and that is simply not possible.
