We meet again! Here's everything you need to know from the horses mouth;
You're pretty limited in choice, I would seriously consider the new base unit I spoke of as your upgrade options will give you a maximum of;
1GHz processor at 100MHz FSB.
No matter what video card you use, you can only run at 2 x AGP, we are currently on 8 x AGP.
If you consider the cost of upgrading this machine - which can be VERY cheap by current standards - and look for a machine of the specs above in the classified ads of your local paper, you will see that the cost of upgrade is most probably less than the resale value.
To give you an idea, these upgrades will allow you to run FS2002 on the machine but only in the upper mid-range of quality/performance. I speak from experience, having run a similar machine. The graphics that would result are along the lines of FS98 on a top machine with maximum details. This is because the hardware physically couldn't go any faster.
