Plenty! The common limitation in the pre-PCIe era was 2GB or 4GB (e.g.,
common 32-bit architecture memory limits). I have several that are
non-PCIe and have 2GB of RAM. They run Fedora just fine. They do,
however, have more modern AGP-based video cards installed, however. I
haven't bothered with the embedded video adapter on them, so I cannot
speak to their suitability for running Fedora 19.
I have old desktop installation
with matrox-mga driver used. Is it will
only single VESA driver choose which do smaller resolution for that?
