I tryed XP Lite before. It was good but it didnt detect my internet card. It mit detect ours but if it doesnt make sure you install Xp lite on a diffrent partion so you can dual boot. It does save so much ram, Ex: 256 = 192MB of free ram

Yea XP lite will save you so much. It helps my bro's computer when playing Need for speed underground. I bet your going to get like 400Mbs of ram free when you install and run etc

yea i know but 576 should handle these games fine.. well atleast rct3. ok ive installed xp pro.. disabled loads of things. i get a good 400mb free (ram). ive also set the vid card settings to the lowest for everything. gta runs a tiny bit better... nothing special.. rct3 runs a lot better and is a lot smoother. i might try tweaking this xp ... im not sure yet

man all the time youve spent on the reinstalls and everything, you could have gone out on the streets polish a few dozen shoes. and then gone to staples and bought a $70 video card.
