    I suggest upgrading the CPU to like a Athlon or P!!! before upgrading the V3.

    Dont just upgrade that K6-2 to a faster K6-2, that wont do you much good.

    For the price of a V5 5500, you can get a Duron 600, a decent Socket A mobo, and perhaps an additional 64MB RAM. You'll get an over-all system performance increase and at least an additional 15 fps in your games.

    Do what they said, get a duron or t-bird, a asus a7v and what not. The voodoo5 is a card I would avoid at all costs.. Its slow and sucks, I have one and yes its slow.
