Same answer that the caddy at The Old Course/St. Andrews gave his charge, when asked, "can I get there with a 5-iron?" "Eventually sir, eventually."
Now, with a 64-bit OS, to run PrPro CS 5 - CS 6, are you saying that you only have 2.5GB of installed RAM?
If so, I am surprised that a 64-bit OS will even run with that small amount of memory. Maybe I am just misunderstanding something there?
3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (64-bit) - 4gb 1067 MHz RAM
My CS6 work pretty good whilst working with it, then suddenly it crashes (if I'm too active with the edits/"button pushing"). I also noticed that exports takes longer time than they should (even for smaller files). Anything I can do immediately to fix the issue?

Since you do not describe what you are editing (click the link I just posted) I will make some general comments
Core 2 is going to be VERY slow with any kind of HiDef file
4Gig Ram is VERY low, barely enough to run Win7 and PPro, with almost no memory left to do any actual work
-8Gig is the practical minimum, 16Gig is better
You do not mention hard drives... you need at least two... 1st for Win7 and all software, 2nd for projects and video files
-separate drives, never a partition http://forums.adobe.com/thread/650708 for more on partitions
Thank you for that clarification. I must have mis-read the installed RAM.
I would look at John T's links.
Guess my system is as basic as it gets.
Why would I need to care about Win7?
I'm bascially just working on one larger project now. In the future I'll probably get a more solid system to work with. But in the meantime, what would you recommend me to hook up with the "set up" I have now. Would prefer external devices.- That can be attached fast and simple. No overkill.
Nice, but can this combat the ram issue as well? Would be optimal if I can get all covered in one external device. Thanks in advance

Huh? Ram and external drive are completely different things... you need more ram (what I said in #4) so your software will work better... you need at least 2 drives so your files load and edit better
What I'm asking, is there a device in 2013, that combine hard drive and ram? Guess not...
