Yeah sorry, guess I should have mentioned it was a desktop. When I hear VAIO I always think of desktop, I forget most people probally think of laptop.

Ok it's come down to these two, but I don't know which one is better

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...140-027&depa=1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...150-040&depa=1

They have the same specs, so I guess it just comes down to brand. Anybody familiar with these two? Which should I get?

You don't have an AGP??? AHAH! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

Oh well, get this:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...140-041&depa=1

It will run CounterStrike Source and the like fairly smoothly, but with just a PCI bus, don't expect too much.

Thanks anyway, I ordered the Apollo

Yeah, no AGP slot. Apparently Sony didn't have gamers in mind with this thing. Oh well, my fault for being a noob and buying an off the shelf.

It's a 2002 btw.
