I'm planning to do some work on my PC including replacing the power supply and HSF. I wondering whether it pays to upgrade my CPU while I will have the case open.
My system currently has a 1.4 Athlon which I am considering upgrading to a 2000+ XP. (the fastest CPU my Abit kg-7 mobo will support). The cost is only about $75 but I'm not sure if I would see any performance difference as the actual clock speed is not very different.
Will the performance noticeable?
