I got my vostro 1720 a while ago and I love it, I paid extra to have the super high res screen and a red case but it is starting to get a little slow.
I know I can upgrade the ram, although im not 100% what type to put in there but can I upgrade the graphics card and cpu? If I can what do I need to buy?
Thanks in advance.
Here is a link to Crucial's web site.
It gives the information on what type of RAM and the maximum amount.

The fastest video card made for this system is the nVidia 8600GT, which is now far out of date - it's not much an upgrade. The CPU is similarly limited to older Core 2 Duo CPUs (T7600 max).
Neither upgrade is really worth the cost - if you want a substantial boost, it's time for a new system.
Thanks for the help guys, the other option is, can I take the 1920x1080 screen or whatever it is on this laptop and put it into a new machine?
That way I wouldnt have to pay the extra for the better screen?
