I have a cyrix 333 with a tx pro motherboard it has 4 slots of 72 pin ram chips curently with 65 MG of ram and above them 2 rows of I think 168 pin slots that are empty what would be the best way to increase my ram with in the limits of my hardware

Unfortunatly adding more 72pin ram would be very expensive, so don't bother.

You will need to check what size 168pins (SDRAM) it supports.
32mb sticks are getting hard to find, 2x32 you wouldn't gain anything.

The cheapest are 128mb sticks, but you may need to get 64mb if their not supported.

You won't be able to keep the old ram, but you could try selling them as their getting hard to find.

Also check what chipset your motherboard has (I think its ALi M1531 (Aladdin IV+)), as some of the older ones are very slow with >64mb of ram.
