Google a proggie called EVEREST Home Edition.

It tells you EVERYTHING about your system and is real user friendly.

Hope it helps...

You can also use sisoft Sandra, What type of computer is it? Is it a customer built one or OEM? Finding out the motherboard manufacturer would help out alot.

Wait.. in your profile, you talk about your next PC. why bother upgrading your old one when you can just save up for your next comp??? Is it for your parents or something to just make it faster?

You would have to referr to a manual or the manufacturer website to find that information out. I'd say the biggest RAM it MIGHT be able to handle is PC133, but you never know PC100 could be it's top. SiSoftware Sandra should provide info regarding how much of what type it can hold

i was thinking about doing som crazy modding just for fun but now im just thinking of selling it for som money to use on the new system. This oldie is no good for gaming thats why im saving up for the amd 64 system. The best game i can play on this pent 3 is like a rct2 or d2 lol
