2GB of RAM is still a decent amount. What kind of things are taking a long time to open? RAM may not be your problem, try some other things first.

Have you repaired disk permissions with Disk Utility?

Do you ever leave your Mac on overnight to let it perform it's daily/weekly/monthly maintenance tasks?

If you've not restarted your Mac in a long time, do so.

Is your hard drive nearly full (This will impact on performance)?

How much stuff have you got on your desktop (Having lots of files on the desktop will slow your Mac down)?

How many Apps do you have running at once (Are you closing them properly?)
