Only the increase heat was noticeable. it would be better to save the money for a new system as even a budget system of a few hundred $ (like an AMD Athlon ii x2 cpu setup) will be many times faster than p4. coffeecoffee June 12, 2010 11:54:02 PM Quote:Nope. performance difference would be barely noticeable. +1 Yep, 400mhz will be barely noticble. Not worth the upgrade - unless your getting the 2.4ghz CPU for free =) Coffee PS: @timop nice sig lol =) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
