yes you would want a Sata pci controller card because I there are no P2 boards with SATA onboard (As Far As I Know). That systemshould be able to run XP (mine does, P1-200mhz). By the way, I doubt you'd be able to play GTA III on a P2 no matter how fast a video card you had.

Hurray for forums! I went out today and bought a Promise Ultra 100 Tx2 ATA/100 PCI Card
Price : $45.95
and it seems to be working great. I'm on the second part of the XP install(the more then 4 colour part, lol) and it's been running flawlessly. :thumbsup: Thanks to all. :)

The thing I don't understand tho, is that the 40GB worked before on it's own, and now suddenly it doesn't want to. And yes, my drive was a OEM one that can just in a antistatic bag.

Sopwith was the ultimate game
the first computer I had, was extremly old, pre-386 times, with no HDD, a 3 1/2, and a 5 1/4 drive, it booted dos off floppies and sopwith was my favourite game

I've played more recent versions of the game but it's just not the same

it's not "the lost vikings". the one I'm thinking of you had depth movement an almost isometric style. their were also three vikings tp choose from: a short green one (i remember it as a favourite) a tall blue guy, and a red girl, if that helps.

old viking game

I'm looking for a game I used to play where you (or you and a friend) chose 1 of 3 vikings then had to battle through sidescrolling levels. Each viking had their own special power. Can anyone remember the name of it?
