Your current specs (CPU, memory, videocard) would be helpful, as well as the CPU or GPU you plan to upgrade to. Your motherboard information would be helpful as well, since it'll be hosting the new potential CPU.

U can see my specs below..........I recently upgraded Athlon 1.2.........and I have noticed great speed in epsxe and other games........but when it comes to heavy graphics I must say that it lags behind........if U want to upgrade them first go for a G-Force......but with upgraded CPU you will enjyoy working more except games.......if U only play games then go for the G-Force.......if not them CPU.......!

Well, which video card are you using now? Anything older than a Geforce would be your first choice for upgrade.

A TNT2 is just about right for a 500 Mhz PC. A videocard like the GeForce 2 would definitely boost frame rates, but the CPU would be a major bottleneck. Still, I think a videocard upgrade would be the best option. Also, if you were to get a new CPU then you might have to get a new mobo, depending on the chipset, which would cost another $100-$150.

I agree with Demigod79, a Geforce would be good, but your cpu would be the bottleneck of your pc. If you upgrade your cpu, surely your gfx card will be a bottleneck. That's my case. I don't want to upgrade my, cause I would have to change everything I will just stick to it until I buy a new one, and if I upgraded just one component, I wouldn't get the best performance of it.

Firegl........I have the same 3D card as yours.......but U can see my specs below.....I play Maxpayne.......with no speed slow downs.....and at a resolution of 1024x728.......at medium........and I am pretty happy with it.......but when it come to games with heavy graphics........it lags behind a bit..........well if you can go for an athlon XP......wih n-Force mobo......this way U will have a G-Force 2 card and a good new PC..........howz that.......!

Inno3D Tornado GeForce 2 GTS PRO 64MB DDR AGP - P6800

rsun doesn't have them so look somewhere else for these and you'll probably get cheaper prices too! or wait a little bit longer till the lower prices fan-out to the local stores with the intro of the ti500 and all.. :p
