Would this upgrade be good?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Should i upgrade my current cpu to this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116172

Would there be a huge PC performance difference between a 3.2gh cpu and my current cpu? Should i upgrade it or save up the money to build a rig in 1-2 years.. hmm what do you guys think.. any suggestion is appreciated ..

don't spend any money...

You won't see much difference between that speed and your old speed.

You could buy a video card though.

Get a 6800 GT AGP if you have an AGP slot.

Then start saving for a new system to build yourself in a year or so.

If you can, think about buying a new motherboard instead and overclocking the northwood. Generally most northwoods overclock fairly well. The cpu upgrade would not be that big of a difference, I would just buy a new motherboard and overclock.
