I have a Pentium 166MMX, a S3Virge3d card and 16Mb of EDO ram. How can I get best performance? With more ram or cache?

It depends on what you are doing with the machine.
First, what is the OS?
NT:don't even think about running it with less that 32M RAM.
95: You can think about it, but I wouldn't if I were you.
Bottom line, get more RAM.

Now, whether you should also increase the cache is another story...
