AM2 Athlon 64 x2 upgrade?

I currently have a 3800+ Athlon 64 x2, 3 GB PC2-4200 DDR2 ram and a 4670 1gb DDR3 gfx...

Would it be worth my time to max my motherboard out to a 5000+ Ahtlon 54 x2 for another $50? That is the max my MB can handle...

  1. Nope its pointless save your money and build a Phenom II x4 rig.
  2. Depending on what motherboard you have overclock it as much as you can to get better performance not worth the money putting a 5000 for a very small performance gain.
  3. WHat is a good sub $200 CPU MB Ram config?

    Or is there a MB/CPU that I could keep my PC2-4200 533mhz ram in for the time being? Something that I could upgrade on later and would be actually worth something then...?
  4. Not much you can do with that ram not sure if anything supports it anymore for under 200 hmmm i like a challenge :)
  5. Found a great combo on newegg under 200 check it out will be an awsome improvement and will use you 533 ram til u can upgrade it.
