    Hello Digit!!
    I am having a computer which is 2 years old.It has the following configuration:
    Pentium III Processor 1.1 GHz, 256 MB SDRAM, 40GB harddisc drive,
    Mercury motherboard(815E TFSX), with a 64MB AGP slot & 32-bit PCI slot.

    Yes you will surely be able to do so if you have an AGP slot, preferably a 4x slot (which is what 815 boards came with I think).

    Are there 8x geforce 2's?

    BTW, if you can afford it, you can also opt for a Geforce4 MX4000 or MX440 which will cost you between 2000 - 3000. In this case, make sure you go for an AGP4x card.

    Your config can coolly handle a GeForce-2, though not give best performance it could on a better sped'd system.
