I have posted the link to Crucials Online Memory Scanner which will give you the type of ram your system will use.
Have you done that yet as I still have not seen a link to the results page.

Post 55 I asked you about the memory and posting the link to the results page from crucial.
Post 49 I asked for the Everest log which included a screenshot of the sensors which you have not posted. I have gone through all the posts and nothing anywhere.
In fact post 62 you posted a link to memory from NewEgg but I don't have the Crucial results page to make sure it is the correct memory.
I went to Crucial's site and got the information myself and it is as follows:

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*



The memory you linked from NewEgg will work and ugrading to 2 gigs total will ensure there is plenty of system memory free.
The video card should work since you have a AGP slot on your motherboard and the video card is AGP also. megs a of video memory is more then enough to run the game.

so how did you learn all this stuff? Books and self taught
-can you program in any language? Nope I don't do any programming
-do you know how to hack? Nope and I help here to correct issues caused by people who do that and have general problems with their systems
-have you designed any programs/games? No but i do play a lot of the newer games and in fact was one of the reasons I built myself a new system almost 2 years ago.
oh and last question is their a
cheap laptop or desktop somewhere that has more than enough system specs to play wurm online? Any of the newer system will be able to do that but the big question is what kind of budget would you have to get a new system?

OK finding a complete system for under 200 is not going to be easy. Everything I'm finding for around 200 is going to be a bare bones system which won't include a OS, Monitor, Keyboard or mouse.

Cheapest on TigerDirect is 300 plus shipping HERE

NewEgg is of no help at all.


You could rebuild your current system or just do the video card and memory upgrades I suggested which would bring your system well past the minimum requirements as I explained.

The cost of the two upgrades should be below 200 with shipping included.

so its ok event hough it is 32bit? what is the difference between a 32 bit and 64 bit computer?
and the proccessor is only 1.6ghz my current computer is 2.8ghz or am i mistaken?
and lets just get this straight so i won't have to worry.
this computer WILL absolutely possitively with no doubt play wurm online with on lag even on highest graphics settings?
also can it play this game because i own some more. :)

i saw the card and it says ATI radeon 8500 and greater so does teh card measure up or down being greater? EX: 8500 is greater than 9000 version but the 6000 version is greater than the 8000 version? i don't get it.
and this game.
