so i have a problem stay with the pentium 4 3.06GHz HT 524 or make a free change to intel pentium dual core 1.6Ghz e2140

My Pc Specs:
intel pentium 4 3.06Ghz Ht 524
1.5Gb RAm ddr2 667Mhz
Geforce gt220 1GB
160Gb sata samsung
win 7 ultimate

the pc is used for gaming so will i get more FPS and better performance with dual core or should i stick to pentium 4?

Thank You,

J.K

Core E2140 = extra gaming FPS. For free.

Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 @ 1.60GHz vs ntel Pentium 4 660 @ 3.6GHz
Pentium 4 524 Prescott 3.06GHz was not in the database so faster P4 660 used instead

- Crysis Warhead
E2140 = 37fps
P4 660 = 22fps
- Far Cry2
E2140 = 21.9fps
P4 660 = 15.9fps
- Left 4 Dead
E2140 = 53.2fps
P4 660 = 31.2fps

I don't suppose you can find an inexpensive Core 2 Duo E6420?
That would be even better than the E2140

Depends on his mobo what c2d support it wil have, some early 775's didn't support faster E's.

Just between the two processors you list, the E2140 is much more powerful.
Not only is it a true dual core (vs the 524's single core + HT), the architecture is easily twice as efficient on a clock per clock basis.
That is to say, even if it where clocked at less than half the speed of the P4, it would still outperform the P4 in single threaded apps.

not to mention the 2140 is very easy to overclock to get even more power. Either way you dont have what i would consider any kind of gaming computer. In fact, you should remove windows 7 as its choking your PC with only 1.5gb ram. 3gb+ is really needed to get a smooth gaming experience with win7. XP would be a much better option for you. But all in all, for free, take it, it is better than what you have.

all depends if your motherboard will support the E2140

second, if you want decent gaming forget about it

ok so i installed the e2140 but now he computer doesn't even start when i turn it on the fans go crazy (100%) and the screen doesnt show anything well the same as the socket would be empty soo i gues the socket doesnt support the processor but the thing is i am now using a phone soo i have no ability to see what kind o motherboard is has(HP dx2200 mt) (an what it supports)

p.s i have tried reseting the bios by removing the battery and turning the pc off the power source although i got no success :( 

Thank You all for Your help,

It probably would have helped if you had checked compatibility before purchasing :/ 

Now that we know exactly what system you have....
Your HP Compaq dx2200 has an ATI Xpress 200 Chipset.
While this chipset does support Core 2 processors (limited by a 1066MHz FSB speed), your particular system only has support in the BIOS for the following Pentium 4 (HT), Pentium D and Celeron D processors:
