    What is the best upgrade?

    I want to get the best performance in 3D games with spending no more than $230, that's what I can afford for now

    my current system:
    AMD K6 200MHz
    32MB RAM
    2MB Video card

    do I increase the memory, upgrade the CPU, get a motherboard that supports AGP 2x, get a new video card...

    Considering your circumstances,and your budget. I'd suggest getting another 32mb ram module and a single V2-12mb video card(if you have the extra pci slot for it).

    To achieve the best performance in all or the current games on the market. You'd have to do a complete system/upgrade overhaul.

    I have an amd k6-2 350Mhz,128 ram, and a ragepro turbo agp 2x /4megs. I added a Monster ll 3D /12megs. Whew, what a difference, my performance more than doubled in fps and the 3D effects skyrocketed.
    Get a voodoo 2 and some more memory.
