I intend on builiding a new pc, but am thinking about waiting until the next gen cpu's are released, so in the meantime, was thinking about upgrading my current pc.

current:
Athlon C 1.2gig@266
A7M266 mobo
512 pc2100 ddr
Geforce4 Ti 4400

upgrades. XP2100 with a volcano 7 fan

will this give a decent performance increase over my current system? How overclockable is an xp2100 and would i need higher bandwidth ram such as pc2700? Or, should I just put together a new system with the latest components running an xp2800 or 3000 on an A78X mobo, and hope the new processors can be used with current mobo's?

If you do not plan on overclocking the system just by a 2000+ (Retail) from newegg for around $80. Otherwise you can buy the OEM and buy a good heatsink. Hopefully that should satisfy you for a while.
