BUMP... just kidding....
Couple more questions... =D
According to what 'jarlmaster47' said about upgrading to a new motherboard and processor... I WOULD or WOULDN'T have to reinstall Windows XP? I just need someone to clear that up.
And also, with my current mobo/processor setup:
MSI MS7021 mobo w/ no onboard video (hence legacy card)
AMD Athlon XP2000+ processor
unknown name band 512MB PC2700U DDR 133MHz RAM (what does the "U" stand for?)
legacy S3 Trio32/64 2MB PCI video card (prehistoric, I know LOL)
If I just replace the 512MB memory card with say... a 1GB PC3200 DDR 400MHz piece (or 2GB), would I see any big improvements?
I'll also be adding a newer, but cheapo, PCI video card so I can get 3D capabilities. I was considering this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...4312&CatId=319
but would anyone recommend anything a little better or 'faster'? I need something cheap (like under $20-$30) but also has 3D rendering.
I know this is an OLD system... I just need something a little more capable until I can build a "REAL" system. LOL...
Any help is greatly appreciated... thanks......
