  1. Is it true that my system will run faster (even with intergrated graphics) with the maximum amount of memory (1024MB)? That is the max my board supports, anyway. Ummmmm...i also can't get higher than PC2100 memory. What are some brands that you would recommend? I am 13, and I will turn 14 this year in June. I want to get a summer job so that I can upgrade system #1 (yeah, I know that I am putting my business out....). Thus, i need to reach this maximum by spending under 120$. (I plan to buy a 60-70 dollar PCI graphics card, too.)

    I would say just wait until you get enough money and buy a faster PC.

    Onboard graphics will always be the same and most games dont really need the maximum amount of memory. Besides, PC2100 memory is really slow.

    i agree with mossimo...wait till you get enough money any buy a new system...any upgrades that you make wouldn't be very usefull considering that you are using pci and can only use pc2100...another option is quickly switch your comp out with your grandmas and hope she doesn't notice :D
