P3's are fine in my opinion. Most games require P3's or higher so your fine. If you must upgrade go for a P4, i know you guys will make comments that "why are you supporting P4 when you have an AMD XP?" well because he has a P3 he is used to cool and quiet and amd's are certainly not cool and quiet. So upgrade to a P4 and buy an AX-7 with a 80mm vantec steath and you should be happy : )

Yeah, you're not really doing that card justice with a P3....

maybe, but he is pushing his games into the very playable realm...there is nothing out there that a PIII cannot play....that said i would only go for the Ti4200 if an upgrade is in the works for the next 6 months of cpu and ram otherwise you might as well get a Radeon 8500LE or Geforce3 and save the money
