Processor upgrade

I have a 1.65 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual processor but my Windows 7 desktop sometimes run slow.

Would an upgrade to 2 G/htz or more speed up my PC?
If so which is the best one to buy?

  1. Graphics card?! Really?


    How much RAM?
    How old is the machine?
    Do you frequently defrag?
  2. What kind of processor and mobo? Is it on a LGA 775? This sounds like a pretty old build and maybe not worth upgrading unless you have access to cheap extra parts. You might want to do a full CPU/MOBO upgrade. Also, how much ram do you have? Not having enough memory can contribute to a slow computer. CPUz can give you a full report of your hardware btw.
  3. Kinda depends. Lot of things influence how your computer performs.

    Do you have lots of bloat-ware ? Or viruses/mal-ware ?

    Are you using a mechanical hard drive ?

    How much ram ?

    Is that an Pentium Dual-Core e2140 cpu? Or is it some newer one ? Getting your model number of your cpu would be useful.

    Do you have a video card ? and if so what is it ?
  4. Yeah I would look elsewhere to diagnose your performance issues. I have configured many even single core Pentium 4HT's @ 2.8-3.4Ghz with windows 7 and they run just fine. I would look at spyware/start up programs/ old files/ registry errors. Download CC Cleaner and malware bytes, run both and get back to me.
