Upgrading question

Im thinking of upgrading but not sure if i should.
As of now i have a
2100+ at 2.3 ghz 200fsb
512mb Twinmos ch-5
8rda+
9700 np unlocked to pro and oced a bit. My card was the one with the 2.86ns samsung chips

Now should i sell the video card and get a new one or put in another 512mb
Which would give me nice eye candy in upcoming games

If you like AMD the a64 3200 is the best deal
If you like intel, like me, go with a 3GHz northwood..
altho, the Northwood w/HT would be faster for applications, and the a64 a little bit faster for gaming, take your pic..

well the frist thing is why not get the best u can 3200xp runs at 400fsb but if u r happly with the cpu u got. i would look into getting 2 times 512mb u should try and buy all u'r ram at the some time as it can very with the chips there use to make them.the next is the video card i have a fx5950 it's fast well it should be at around 270pounds a few months ago. what every way u go with these 2 options it will speed up u'r pc. when i got my old ti4600 card(back in 2001 i think:>) i could not beleave how much the pc speeded up.
