You would be better off buying new. You aren't going to get much out of it. Maybe 200/233 but those chips are really hard to find now and you really won't notice any speed improvement

More ram and/or a larger hard drive would be your best investment if you plan on keeping it.

I have one at work, if it's the same it uses proprietary ram and it's damn expensive. Only hold 64 meg max I believe.
