Hi, My wife started using an older system I had and we are looking into upgrading it. Money is somewhat tight, so we are going for essentials. The system is about 3 years old and is the following: AMD t-bird 900mhz 512mb SDRAM PC133 (1x 256 + 2x 128) Asus Geforce2 Mx400 64mb Gigabyte GA-7IXE4 mobo The three first things we are looking at upgrading are the ram, the vid card and the processor (in that order). After reading up on the motherboard, I see that each ram slot takes up to 256mb sticks, PC133, double sided. So I'm gonna switch out the 2 sticks of 128 for 2 sticks of 256. Shouldnt be a problem. I'm currently looking into the graphics cards. My problem is that I cant find out what type of card my mobo will support. I was looking at the Geforce FX5200 128mb Magic card, as its pretty damn cheap and this will last me for at least a few years until I can do a bigger upgrade. But I dont know if my mobo will support this vid card. I have read about the mobo having troubles with gf3 cards. Is there a way to find out? The processor will be the next step. I believe the max for the mobo is a 1.4gig processor. Better than nothing. hehe Thanks for any help!!
