Hi Brian,

The answer to the first two qestions is yes But keep in mind that the latest and greatest software and hardware comes with a high price tag I would stick with the Pent 3 and if you wanted to install a CD-R,CD-RW or DVD spend a little more for the better quality unit.As far as upgrading your OS from Win 98 to XP I would wait on that until all of the bugs are out of it Win ME would be a better choice There again, buy the full version not an upgrade for Win 98.

Thank You,
