Hey guys, i have an expendable pentium 3 lying in my room, Is it worth overclocking and sticking a half way decent Graphics card in? Im not expecting much from it, but it would be nice for Lan games of Rise of nations or Command and conquer style games. It already handles Rise of nations easy, but i want to squeeze some extra performance out of what life it has left.

As it stands just now

Pentium 3 1ghz
1 GB Sdram
ASUS Radeon 9250 (can upgrade as necissary)
