Solved CPU Upgrade worth it? Tags: AMD Quad Core CPUs Last response: July 22, 2013 12:48 AM in CPUs Share Mitchell Downes July 21, 2013 4:42:04 PM Hi, I have a HP Pavilion p6-2002uk and is it worth it to upgrade the cpu from AMD E2-3200 2.4GHz dual core to AMD A6-3650 2.6GHz quad core. The Quad core CPU amazon link is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-A6-3650-Quad-Core-Processor... It will cost me £54.69. If I upgrade the CPU I will also have to upgrade the Power Pack from 300 watts to 400 watts. The cpu usage is quite high a lot of the time too and the system can be quite slow and unresponsive at times. Also both processors will also work with my motherboard.

If you are also using the integrated GPU, the performance will more than double. Good luck. Mitchell Downes July 22, 2013 12:48:35 AM OK thanks, I will just get the processor and hopefully see a performance boost. I searched online at the bench marking site cpubenchmark.net and the score for A6-3650 is just under 2.5 times higher then the E2-3200. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
