    geforce2 ti 200? if that is the card you are talking about, yes it will outperform a gts pro, not by much, but it will.

    that 400mhz k6-2 will bottleneck the system badly

    that thing will fly on an athlon,PIII or duron system. Athlons are pretty cheap, even the new Xp's. To get max performance out of your current board, a k6-3 might help, but to see a real difference a later generation chip and board is needed. Heck a duron at 400Mhz would smoke any chip of that generation at same clock.
    The pentium IV to me just represents a big consumer scam, it has it strengths, but its weaknesses and price just don't valiadate them, the athlon has proven that at lower clockspeeds it equals or even beats a PIV at hundreds of Mhz higher, the new duron core has its strengths too, but imho its price is too close to the Athlon Thunderbird to valiadate it as well. You may very well get a 800-950 duron extrememly cheap, like over here a 750 only like 25 quid
    its up to you in the end, you may very well be happy with the new card and current chip, but you will not be 'unleashing' the full potential of the card by a long shot
