You would definitely need a new video card, that thing won't cut it at all

Go to the dell small business systems. You can get a cheap one with XP that will have PCI-E and ddr2. get it bare bones and upgrade the video card and ram... all you need it 2gb ram.... but the more you have the smoother things will run... ddr ram will not do much for you, the clock rate is far below your motherboards perfomance ability. You will always have a bottleneck somewhere in hardware, but you can move it around. 4 most important things are disk I/O, ram speed, CPU and GPU...for gaming at least

That computer is somewhat limited because it is using an AGP slot, as opposed to a PCIe slot. The best you can probably get is a 6200, and that isn't jumping up that much.

Ok. thanks for the info, I guess I will pass on it then.

Could you guys spec me a system in the range of $800 or so it would be for gaming mainly and internet surfing.
