  1. There is no 21st Century upgrade for this system. This is DDR1 RAM and without knowing what the rest of your system specs are (in particular the motherboard), there is no telling what upgrades are available to you.

  2. Search eBay / Amazon for this kind of memory - http://www.amazon.com/PC3200-400MHZ-184PIN-UNBUFF-NON-ECC/dp/B000094AE4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374767927&sr=8-1&keywords=512MB+184-Pin+DDR+SDRAM+DDR+400+%28PC+3200%29
    What is the motherboard? How much memory does it support?

  3. HAHAHAHA When you said old gaming computer, I was thinking of back in my beginning days of the Atari 800 w/ 64k and a basic cartridge.
    I still have an Amiga 500 tucked away in a box with a 20meg supra external HD.
    Sorry, didnt mean to hijack the thread... going down memory lane.

    Slap some more RAM and an SSD into that thing and it will feel brand new. Although if it's still running a single core processor it may be too slow for you to feel the true power of an SSD.

    --edit-- An SSD may not be the best option actually, if your running an OS that does not support TRIM or the motherboard doesn't have SATA connections it may not be a viable option. At that point you might want to look into a new computer all together.
