    I don't expect to be able to set any records, but I want to boost my system's overall performance a bit (if possible). I currently have a PIII 667MHz (133MHz FSB) with 768MB PC133 RAM (maxed out on mobo). It has a GeForce2 GTS vid card with 32MB RAM. I do mostly Internet and CD burning stuff and play the occasional game. I might play more games if my computer could handle it, though. Will anything help or is the mighty 133MHz front side bus gonna dick me? Thanks!

    You're better off going with a new computer.
    Depending on the games you play, you're gonna want at least a 1Ghz processor and at least a GF4 generation card..

    My mobo can handle up to a 1GHz PIII. So if I bought one of those and a GeForce4 TI 4600 would I be helping myself any?
