Default Upgrade

I would like to upgrade my CPU but I am not sure how far I can. I will provide my specs. Can soneone please tell what else I would need to upgrade, how much do you think all of this would cost, and if it is even worth it. Can someone please let me know?

Thank you.

you wouldn't be able to get any better than a K6-3+ 550mhz, if the chipset/BIOS supports it which i think it should. you may have to set the multiplier and FSB manually (5.5x and 100mhz). if you could pick up a CHEAP second hand cpu and you're not going to be doing much with this pc then it's not a problem. otherwise i think this pc may be a bit of a lost cause.
