I have an older computer Compaq 266 MHZ 6 GB hard drive 256 MB ram.I would like to clean it up and let the kids play games on it but how many of the newer games can you play on this system? I would like to add a graphic card and I think I have a slot for it but don't know if this will even help.
Thanks

the CPU is a bit slow - but you have reasonable amount of memory.
If you look at the games you want to play - they will stat min CPU speed.
My boys had an old 266MHz PC with 128M and they played games on it (sims, football manager etc) - although when they readched 13 and 11 they grew out of it and wanted more demanding games.......

just dont expect too much...

How old are the children and what games do they want to play
whats the Model of the PC

Run these programs it will tell us what hardware you have and what slots you have for more advice on video card
The program is freeware called EVEREST Home Edition v1.10 and can be downloaded from http://www.lavalys.com/index.php?page=product&view=1&subpage=5
or http://www.belarc.com

Kid that enjoys the computer the most is 8. He likes action games. He is always downloading Microsoft free Version. I am going to download from those sites and I will get back. Thanks
