I have a motherboard with an Intel 430vx chipset, i have
read that it only caches ram up to 64 megs.
well i want to add a further 32 to bring it up to 96 (this is for 3d rendering) will I actually lose overall performance because of the extra 32 not being cached, or just get less of an improvement than i would if it was cacheable?

You will be able to load more stuff into memory, so if your computer is currently swapping to the disk then yes, you will see some performane gain because you won't have to access the disk as much, otherwise you will lose about 3%-4% in performance.  To restate If your computer is swapping to the disk alot, getting more memory should speed it up, if not then it WILL slow it down 3%-4%.
