It probably wont support it. Bur a 64mb PCI graphics card should be fine. (check, but I dont think the board will have an AGP slot)

as far as im aware, its the operating system or the motherboard that has the limitations of memory and not the proc, are you confusing the on chip cache memory with the RAM memeory, on chip cache is the memory on the processor itself , RAM is the system memory which can be added to if needed.

i never heard of a limit for a socket 7 proc memory wise but then again, most socket 7 systems only had 64mb, or 128 if you were lucky.

maybe its time for a format/reinstall to clear the system and maybe speed things up again, or maybe even time to take the plunge and buy a newer faster pc.
