I have quite an old PC, and i'm thinking of upgrading my CPU (to a used one), although i'm really low on budget. I'm using the PC mainly for music production purposes, which involves some real time effects (vst plugiins) which are quite CPU intensive on my current system. I have an upgrade idea in mind, and wanted to know what do you think about it.
I went through the whole supported CPU list in Gigabyte's website and compared all the best contenders in the budget - which is around 90$. I found one that was the best of all of them - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400.
Now, i want to know how much do you think this upgrade would be effective, Do you think it's worth it? or nothing below the 130$ range will make a difference?
More aboutopinions budget upgrade please
It is well worth it over your P4 650! The E8400 is still a very good dual core!
