Your computer seriously needs a big overhaul. At my local hardware store, I can get a MSI K7N2 Delta FISR which is a completely packed NF2-400 for $85, and an XP-M 2500+ for $130 and then a decent cooler for like $35. Pair that with a Micron 512MB pc3200 stick for only $60. That's all about $310, and that's all in canadian dollars. You could probably get all for like $200 in US. With Xp-m at 2.4GHz, 1gb ddr400 and an overclocked Ti4200, I managed to do 14,000 in 3D01, so you should really save up. Just $200 will like triple your performance b/c of the mobo/cpu/ram you're running right now (256mb is really really low).

I understand you're probably low on money, so I hope you find a really good deal. If you are really gonna buy something, you should only consider the nForce2 400. It's the only chance you're gonna get to use like a Mobile to get 2.4GHz+. NF2 is the only choice and that's it. The VIA chipsets simply don't compare to NF2..

Anyway, I found the Epox 8RDA3i for $58 at newegg. It's a really good board, prolly better than Shuttle, and it's a good price. The MSI K7N2 Delta LSR is also about $61. Another good deal.

If you want to see what a GF4 Ti4200 can do with modern software then a good review is here:-

6600 gt v 5900 xt v gf4 ti4200 v r9700 pro v r9600 xt

It's not really upto even 9600 xt level but the good old Ti4200 is available very cheaply and is much better than most video cards in it's price range!

Been a long time since I posted in this thread, and I upgraded my system, with a Barton running at 2.13ghz (185x11.5, most stable overclock) with a ABIT KV7 motherboard. Runs like a charm, and at stock speeds got nearly 11k 3dmarks. Very nice! The FX5200 doesn't even work with this motherboard, for that I'm glad. Paired up with a new stick of 256 (total of 512mb now, but more will probably go in soon), everything runs nicer and faster. Almost every game I've thrown at it runs at high details, 800x600 with no problems, except a select few new games like Brothers in Arms which only hit 'barely playable' with bloom effects on. Which is strange, but they run without the extra gloss, so I'm still happy.
