i can't turn on my computer. I haven't turned it on for 8 years. I don't want to buy a power supply for it yet. I just want to know what does it have.

It is a pre-P1, 66 mHz MX400.......it's useful primarily for target practice! A well placed 30-06 round should do it!

yes, like Rico said its a old 66 mHz. I used to have a dx2-66 then a dx4-100. Also, as far as Gateways being all integrated, nothing could be farther from the truth. Same with Dell's. Most people just buy the cheapest model (the big sale ones) which ARE integrated and usually have no AGP slot. You CAN get one that has an AGP, though. You just have to make sure you know what you are doing when buying one. Like mine. I have a gateway, purchased because it would be cheaper to get with the software and what not, then I just gutted it and put what I want in. So as far as proprietary stuff, nah. Thats not true at all. Just depends on what you get.
