    My poor old PC is a 466MHZ Celeron with 64mb RAM dynamacly shared with graphics. I do have some spare slots on my motherboard.

    Could I add a seperate graphics card to my computer? At present the graphics 'card' is integrated within the motherboard.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!!

    If you have any PCI slots then you can put a PCI graphics card in there, but the card alone would be worth more than your machine.

    If your goal is to free up the RAM, and not play games, just buy more RAM. A 466Mhz celeron won't make much of a game machine anyway.

    Don't waste your money on a graphics card. Save up for an entirely new computer, and if you wanna turn that old Celeron machine into anything useful just get a 256 or maybe a 128 stick of sd ram after you get your new computer.
