Yeah sorry about this.. I have an eMachines 3230 and its pretty crap, it doesnt run hardly any games due to its low graphics and rather pathetic RAM.
So im trying to improve on them two.. i'm going to buy a PCI 6600 GeForce graphics card but im not sure it will work? will it be able to work with my emachines pc?
Also i want a PC3200 DDR 1gb RAM card to put in, do all DDR RAM cards work in DDR RAM slots?

Need your motherboard model and manufacturer. If you don't know, download cpu-z(google) and paste the info from the mainboard tab.

Also manufactuers don't put in good power supplies in their systems. I'd be nice to know what power supply you have and how many Amp's are on the 12V rail.

If you open up your case, top left they'll be your power supply, on the label please tell me the rating for the 12V rail.

It'll look something like 12V =---= 18A.

If you don't have enough power on your 12V rail you won't be able to power a 6600 GeForce in there.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

The graphics card should work. Your motherboard has two expansion slots for a total of 2GB of RAM. Most all manufacturers have web sites that will have an advisor tool where you plug in the information about your computer and they will provide you with a list of RAM that they know will be compatible with your motherboard.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
