...Dose any body know much about anything I have bought? Looking for pro's and con's, any hardware driver upgrade advice and I want to know what I can buy for the AGP slot & the ISA slot, what is supposed to be plugged into them. Also, if anybody could tell me how far I can go in relation to gaming (*note: I am a new'be & don't know any games but I want to play something like XBOX's FORZA with a force feed back steering wheel) & what car racing games I can buy for this computer with out burning it out.
