What does this mean? Would it be hard to install windows xp on it?

DDR 400 (PC-3200)

Where can I get some good low priced 3x 512MB ram for this? I need as much as this pc can take and Im guessing it can take up to 2GB

I need a 6600GT for this pc, could you find me the right one and give me the link?

If this is a good pc, please help convince me to buy it. I would like to know the speed compared to the AMD 3200, and if its worth the extra money to get a better video card and more ram.

I would just buy a new computer. Upgrading would cost only about 1/3 less than building a new one. Since you want to run high specs games. Plus, its your dad's.
