  1. Hi all,

    Intel Celeron 335 CPU 2.80GHz with a 512MB DRR of RAM

    If any one can shed some light I would be internally grateful.

    Regards:)

    Is she running XP?

    Do you know what motherboard it is by any chance? Just because the older motherboards, will have an AGP card slot for the graphics, which is the older slot and finding AGP cards can be hard to come by. At least I know thats the case in my country.

    What exactly does she want to use the machine for?

    hi A22,
    can you post more complete specs?. what exactly do you want to be able to do with the computer with an upgrade? with such dated tech (ddr1 and a celeron) you wont be able to have a gamer if that what you want. might be better saving for a new rig.
