Ya i know this thing is got like 64mb of ram (another upgrade working on) its a good thing i use a more modern computer from 04 for Microsoft Train Simulator i could never run that on the 97 Gateway. I just like upgrading these things its got so much possibalities its got alot of room in the case for upgrades. (and ya its got a Pentium 2 at like 254 Mghz) i am planning on playing some "light games" on it with these upgrades.

Mike

You could try one of these: SPARKLE GeForce FX 5200. It's not a barn burner, but it's a big improvement from the current graphics.
