Except for the video card (does it even support OpenGL?), that system is fine for developemnt. You might want to add a bit more RAM, but it''s not absolutely necessary.

I used to do OpenGL in software on a P100, 48mb RAM, s3 Trio 64

128mb is plenty, because I''ll bet sis isn''t AGP and so RAM makes no difference to your OpenGL performance after you subtract the general Windows usage.

I think SiS does have basic 3D capabilities, but I''m not sure. Just grab a demo of a popular game and see how you go. It may be low quality.
