Is it worth it to upgrade from a 120 Pentium to a 133 Pentium

Question

I currently have an older computer (Pentium 120MHz, 60MHz bus). Eventually I plan on upgrading the motherboard and CPU. Until then, the motherboard will support changing to a Pentium 133 with 66MHz bus, and upgrading to 2MB video ram. Memory will not need to be changed. Will any of these options improve the performance of my system much until I can do the motherboard upgrade?

Your performance will improve, but not to the point where you will actually see a difference to the naked eye You may see a minor improvment in the time it takes to launch an application, or your video may run a tad bit smoother I would hang on to your cash until you can get what you really want.
