That sounds a LOT like my old HP... cant remember wtf it had in it....... But it was 533Mhz i think.... might have been 566.... But i paid $999 for it around 6 years ago had a 20gb hdd, and 128mb of ram..... but half that was for the onboard video

First one I bought was on ebay about 4 years ago. Diamond MM Monster 3D Accelerator card. The stupid ones with the lame crossover cable from your main video card.
