Thanks. It's for an old 2004 PC I have that I'm trying to beef up. It's already got 2GB DDR-400, and I'm waiting for a Sempron 3000+ which should be arriving this week sometime.

Yes it does have AGP, but cards for it seem to be quite expensive. At the moment it has Linux Mint XFCE, but CPU is constantly hitting 100% when I try to load something, and locking up. If it is still like this I'm going to try Linux Lite. Windows 10 (annoyingly) won't work as the CPU lacks SSE2.

Yup, but with an XFCE Linux OS I think it will do alright. The new CPU it's getting is about 20% faster with twice as much cache, and I hope a GPU will make videos a little faster. Then I guess that it should be about good enough for just browsing the internet and making word documents etc.
