You are limited to what you can do with this motherboard simply because the hardware needed to upgrade it are getting scarce. You can run 3 gigs of PC3200 memory, the Athlon BARTON 3200 CPU and the fastest 8X AGP video card you can find( probably a Nvidia 7800 ).

But why bother with trying to find the hardware on pricewatch.com when you can have a much faster computer by buying a MB-CPU combo kit like this one.
