i am upgrading my server that i built out of an old dimension 2400. the cpu is bottlenecking. sooo, which would be better for my money? the 3.2 ghz northwood or the 3.4 ghz northwood? i need as much performance as possible, but is it worth an extra $20?
Will either 3.2 or 3.4 meet your needs?
If not, you will have spent too much.
Today, I don't think I would spend much on a system that is several generations old unless it will still completely do the job.
What is your current cpu?
