Upgrading Emachines July 25, 2004, 8:46 am
Hey I'm just wondering I'm also thinking about maybe going with a 2.6 ghz emachine but there all integrated boards so If it has 2 available PCI slots would I be able to put a good PCI video card and use that with the system instead of the shitty one already with the motherboard?.
