#1 use it as as a software test bench for suspicious programs

#2 set it up as a small file or media streaming server

#3 use it as a dedicated firewall with opensource software like Smoothwall

#4 give it to a member of family who hasnt got a PC and only needs to do mundane tasks.

If youre lookin to use it for an old games rig...youre gonna need some more ram.

I had an old single core skt.939 AGP setup that could handle games like L4D at high settings usual a X850XT PE and about 2 GB ram.

game did lag a little without a dedicated soundcard though.

Im not sure how good your system would run. the HD4670 was the last AGP card - its quite a rare find and can be quite pricey when found. the H4670 should make a lot of difference to gaming compared to my X850

The 4670 would be killed by the Athlon xp 3000+. To much of a bottleneck. I personally used a hd2400pro with my Axp system and it did great. I also would upgrade the memory to 2gb and it will do well. What os are you planning on running with it? I was running xp sp3. I am actually going to bring that system back up soon.


You can use it as your main web surfing machine and to play some older games. I played up to Unreal Tournament III and quake 4 on mine and it did good. Love for the old socket a's

I already have an HIS IceQ 4670 AGP here. The problem is that it's overkill for all older stuff I have.

Exactly, a 9800 pro/xt or, like I use, a hd2400 pro pair well with a Athlon xp system. :toast:
