I have a small dilemma here.
I'm building a new gaming PC later this month but my Dimension 4600 still have some good use for my brother.
So, I'm wondering if I should upgrade or leave it like that.
My processor is somewhat a bottleneck to the whole system when I play games at higher settings.
Would it be wise to upgrade the processor to a 3.0 or 3.4ghz? I heard problems with 3.4 ghz I'm not sure.
Can I even change the motherboard and go AMD?
I'm not sure anymore.
I need some advices here. Thanks

I wouldn't recommend anything other than upgrading the video card and I wouldn't go crazy because it won't be able to use it in a new build. That mobo/CPU is last generation and in a year give or take it'll be 2 generations old. If you're looking at a new mobo, you're looking at a new computer, mobo, CPU, RAM, PSU (Dell's aren't that good and it's likely weak around 350w), new GPU, and likely a new case if the PSU isn't standard size.
