What you should do is toss out that machine before it give you any headaches. In all seriousness that ram was an attempt to bring a new standard to the table when DDR was introduced. It failed miserably for multiple reasons , most noticeably price and heat issues.
Invest in a new mobo/memory/cpu it would be cheaper than spending on new RAM-Bus memory.

I want a windows 9x machine and this machine is great at that

Or you could just upgrade and run a virtual 9X system. Seems silly to want a 9X machine these days.

It will be a gaming machine.... Which virtual machines fail at
Posted 01 February 2013 - 15:35
I can't imagine a game which runs on 9x that a virtual machine couldn't play at this point, or hasn't been ported to a new version of Windows.

It will either be Socket 423 (for early Pentium 4s), 478 (most common), or LGA 775 (newest). If it's an LGA 775, you will be able to upgrade the processor to a Core 2 Duo or Quad; however, judging by the fact that you have RDRAM, it's very likely that your motherboard has a Socket 423 or maybe 478, in which case, it's not worth upgrading the processor. Run CPU-Z to make sure.
How do I figure out which CPU is the last p4 proccessor that will work with this motherboard?
