More Ram (What is the Unofficial Ceiling?)
May I suggest the Compaq/HP BD07285A25 (73 GB)? It's a Ultra-320 SCSI disk with SCA 80-pin connector, thus you'll need an (inexpensive) adapter (will it fit inside the 6100? I have been able to shoehorn one of these into a LC475).Install Biggest Hard Drive Accepted

If I find it too bad, I will probably add some VRAM).
I have several of these cards, some with the full loadout of VRAM, so why wait? PM me if interested and I'll see if I have a third set of sticks for you.

Buy a NuBus Riser Card for my Secondary Video Card*

I note that you later amended that to DVD-RAM, but I just thought I'd mention in case: you won't be able to play DVD movies on a 6100, no matter how upgraded it is.
That's a PDS right angle adapter you want, not a Nubus adapter. They are two different parts; the HPV card will not work in the Nubus adapter.
The Sonnet G3 upgrades have a PDS socket for the HPV card, and take the place of the PDS riser. Get one of them; it's about as easy to find as the plain PDS riser and you get a G3 and cache thrown in for free. Cache is either 512k or 1MB - IMHO getting the larger cache is more important than the CPU speed. NB: with a G3 card installed you can't use (and don't need) the motherboard cache.
Oh look, brand new with warranty 400MHz/1MB for $30

Do you know why this is?
