My sisters friend gave her a dell 4100 with 996mhz comp for free. it has an ATI rage 128 pro AGP 4x , and it came with win 2000 when they bought it. Now right now on my newer computer (dell 4550) i have 64meg geforce 4 MX w/ tv out which would be better in my computer for gaming (she said we could switch)

yes, anything above a geforce FX is pretty good, preferrable a 5700 or higher, i have a 5950 ultra in my other comp and it works great. The only problem with dells is that they are hard to replace parts for, if your having trouble i suggest you just scrap the whole computer and build yourself one.

What is the speed in MHz of the second computer?

Rage 128 is totally inadequate for any gaming and Im inclined to say I would nt want to play any games of the last year with a Geforce MX either.

You need at least an ATI Radeon 9000 to get good preformance...
