    I finally completed my Major computer overhaul. THanks to everyone for the advice. Here is the list of all that I have done to this computer and remember that I have never even opened up the case of a computer as of about 2 weeks ago.

    Old Computer:
    Intel EX motherboard
    266 Celeron
    64 MB pc-100 ram (the computers only saving grace)
    NO graphics card
    NO sound card
    14 inch monitor
    $5 dollar mouse
    $3.00 keyboard
    2 gb Hard drive
    Win 95
    Cheap Heatsink and fan

    And NOW!!!!!
    best heatsink and fan I could buy at my local store
    Win 98
    20.5 GB IBM 7200 Harddrive
    Memorex Comfort keyboard
    Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer
    19' Generic Monitor ($175 New and looks good to me)
    Creative SoundBlaster Card
    V3 2000 Card (not overclocked yet)
    64 MB pc-100 ram
    Abit BE6-2 motherboard
    433 Celeron@546 and stable as a rock (haven't tried higher)

    SO as you can see I am stoked. I managed to hit the sales and got all this for about $850 including tax. I am a happy puppy. THanks again for the help, I had that stuid question about why my monitor wouldn't plug in, duh I didn't have a graphics card. Hey I learned.


    Finally got the 600e and the Global win VOS32. Now I need some good ram...

    Great, glad it went so well for you! When you are ready, another 64mb of ram would really boost performance and there is no easier upgrade to do!
