What is the difference between an AMD K6 300Mz and an AMD K6 II 300Mz? The difference in price is about £20, is it worth it?

The AMD K6 II, due to a legal battle with Intel over technology, is almost the spitting image of a Pentium II processor. Price wise, it would probably be a better deal, technology wise, it's lacking a little.

I will expand on what Erlachma said you will NOT see any of the 3D enhancement advantage untill the motherboard and or software writers write code for this chip....And they may never do it!!!

Look at the price difference if the K6 is significantly cheaper buy it..I am totally satisfied with mine.

I paid $77.00 for an AMD K6 233...look for the 266 or better now.

Thankyou for your help. I think I'll get the K6 II anyway for an extra £20 if the next version of Direct X does support it it will probably be worth it.
