Hello, I have a Amd Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2.1ghz and i was wondering is it worth upgrading to a Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.9ghz??? ( i can get the 5600+ for about $35)

the 5600+ is the highest my motherboard can handle (according to the link below)
Will games run any better with the 5600+ vs the 4000+?

This is my motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en...

I am currently running Vista 32 bit


0101 - Operating System : Windows Vista™ Home Premium 32 bit
0103 - BIOS : Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
0104 - Processor : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ (2 CPUs), ~2.1GHz
0105 - Memory : 2046MB RAM
0109 - DirectX Version : DirectX 10
0301 - Card Name : ATI Radeon HD 2900 GT

More about : 4000 5600

No not really. Compared to a modern processor there would be pretty much no noticable performance difference. That computer is so old you are better off just getting a new one. Even something low end with an Ivy Bridges Pentium will be a million times better than that computer.
