I have a Pentium 133mhz Packard Bell computer. I was thinking of upgrading my cpu chip to 200mhz. Will this really improves my performance? Is it a good idea to upgrade my chip or is it better to just buy another computer?

These days it just doesn't make financial sense to upgrade an older system like yours. There are so many super deals on models made for the Christmas season that are "rotting" on retailer's shelves as the new models are rolling out.  It's amazing what you can get for $499.  I bought a Packard Bell, Cyrix M2, 48MB RAM, 4.3G disk, 56K modem, 32X CDROM, multimedia system for that price at OfficeMax.  There were at least 5 different models in that price range.  Top of the line systems were $799.

I'd say, buy a new system, give the old one to your kids or your mother to play with.
