My dad has a really old ibm computer in the basement and he doesn't really need it anymore, he just has it because all of his sound equipment for his job is down there so while he burns cds he can print out labels. Well anyways I was wondering if it would be worth it to maybe fix it up a bit or to just throw it out. Not really to have another computer, but just for the feel that i accomplished something and to get a little experience because when i'm an adult (i'm 14 now) I want to have my own computer business where I fix and sell computers. Here are the some of the specs (Ya there not really that specific, but the computer wouldn't tell me much I might try installing everest on it).
-Authentic AMD, AMD-K6 3D processor
-64 mb of ram
(we tried hooking it up to our cable modem and it said it doesn't have enough ram but there is two slots for cards) Can expand to 256 which i will have two 128's eventually, hopefully they'll fit.
-6 gig hardrive
-It didn't list the memory of the graphics but it had the chip. RAGE PRO TURBO AGP, MACH 64 RAGE PRO
-Its running windows 98 from 4/10/98 also.
I was just thinking of maybe getting a little bit bigger of a hardrive like 20 gigs or so and maybe a better graphics card but I don't think it has the right slots for one. Also that ram that I was talking about earlier.
Ya this probably sounds kind of dumb but thanks for reading it anyways.
