Hi Robert,

I am amazed to know that you are still using and tolerating so old Operating System. Dear, the solution or I must say, suggestions regarding your questions are simple and clear. I am suggesting you some key facts that you should follow in order to upgrade your Hardware.

Firstly it is not possible to upgrade the hardware up to latest versions because your motherboard will not support it. You should change your main board as a first priority in order to further upgrade your system. After your main board you need to upgrade your OS to XP or Windows 7 as per specifications of your system. Then you need to upgrade your memory and video card to at least such level that you can enjoy latest games. And last but not the least you would need to change your processor also, because with out a fast and latest processor your system might run at a snail’s speed.

Thank you

Yes it is possible to increase your VGA capacity and for this you need to buy a VGA card for your computer. VGA card is easily available in these days and you can find one form your next step computer shop. As you are using a External video card and it can be easily available in these days you can replace it with a new one also. As you require to play games on your computer so you can choose one that is of 128 MB Memory or as per your requirements.

Once you have the card then you can simply apply it to your computer and it will work fine in all cases. But what you need to check is that your computer supports the VGA card you want to apply for this you can check the system requirements and it will work fine.
