I have an Athlon XP 2000+ Socket A L1 cache 128kb L2 cache 256kb on an Asus A7n8X-X board. i'm using PC 3200 DDR 1 RAM. RAM runs at 200Mhz. A suggestion was to run One RAM is a generic 512MB. One is Kingston value RAM 512 and the other is a Kingston 1GB stick. ( 2 gigs total) I had a PCI ATI Sapphire RADEON video card 128Mb which had an s-video connection. I changed it to a 256 mb AGP Sparkle Radeon GE Force 6200 video Card which I got for about 50 bucks.

it is old but it works. ...

Parts are cheap. second hand or used sometimes you an find new AGP cards in a box (Only because they've been sitting on a shelf somewhere and never opened) Mine was manufactured in 2005 Bought it new in 2007. I've bought used RAM. 30 bucks. I also bought a PCI sound card used from a computer store that does upgrades and they just place the stuff in a box until someone asks for it.

Look around enough and you won't spend a lot of money upgrading if you just want to keep it going a bit longer.

The video card is an expansion card that allows the computer to send graphical information to a video display device such as a monitor or projector.Each motherboard supports only a limited range of video card formats so always check with your motherboard manufacturer before making a purchase.opular Video Card Manufacturers:

NVIDIA Corporation, ATI Technologies, Matrox

Note: These companies actually manufacture the processors, called graphics processing units (GPUs), that operate the video card. Many other companies utilize these processors in their particular brands of video cards.
