OK 2 more questions on the upgrade...in re ram is the Kingston chipset OK if I can get it for about $40 less than the Micron? And I'm looking to better my video currently have 8MB AGP on board (no AGP slot) is the Voodoo, Diamond or Guillemot(Hercules/Prophet, etc.), or ATI better for my system using the 500MHz Celeron? I'm thinking 32MB PCI 3D for around $150 or less. I don't plan on extreme gaming but would like to work with c++ and have a workable 3D environment (I'll upgrade RAM to 192MB first). Thanks for any opinions/advice-Jerry http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/confused.gif

By "chipset" do you mean RAM? The Kingston will probably do an adequate job for you, sure.
As for the video, check first to be sure you can add a new card to your existing system. I can't recommend specific cards but I'm sure someone here can. Also check out reviews at a good review site like AnandTech (http://www.anandtech.com).
