Question on OverDrive and performance

I have a P133 and am thinking of upgrading to a P200.  Since my motherboard doesn't support MMX, I would need a plain P200 processor or the OverDrive processor that would make my PC a P200MMX. Does the OverDrive processors perform as well as a plain Pentium processor? Does it totally replace my current processor or does it somehow attach itself to it?

Thanks

Well, this may not really address your question, but I would not invest any money in an overdrive processor. You can generally get a new motherboard for the same price as an overdrive chip, and with the new board you get all the latest improvements in technology along with a faster processor. As for MMX, I don't think you would notice any difference if you added it. If I was spending money on upgrading the machine, I would go with more main memory or a better video card
