so now i was just wondering what kind of new hardware am i able to put on this old mobo without making a bad choice

I already bought 2 of these RAM: 256MB PC100 CL2 3.3V SDRAM 168PIN (32X8)


i believe they should work fine on it ...i still have the manual
"Memory Support:
°Three DIMM slots for 3.3V SDRAM 168-pin memory modules.
°Support for 66MHZ and 100MHZ memory bus.
°Maximum installed memory can be 3 x 256MB = 768MB

:4-dontknoTough choices are certainly the Hard Disk/Video Card:
WD 80GB 7200RPM ATA100 8MB

GeForce FX5200 128MB DDR

Do you guys think i would be able to get these and simply install them without any problem of compatibility?

And is there any suggestions for a BIOS update?

Thanks in advance:pray:

I think that is PCI 1.0 motherboard so the PCI 2.2 video card won't work.
Try eBay for a older 2.0 AGP Video card.
It may also only support ATA66 IDE hard drives it is a old motherboard socket 7 is Pentium and backwards compatible to a 486 chip as well as the AMD and cyrix offerings listed above.
