Need Advice on Upgrade from P4 2.66 to 3.06

I have a P4 2.66 533 CPU running in a Gateway system. How much of a boost would my system get by upgrading the CPU to 3.06? I have already upgraded to 1 gig of RAM and a X800 GPU.
Thanks for the advice.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by scalpel on 12/01/04 10:37 AM.</EM></FONT></P>

  1. Might get a slight boost, but not worth the cost.
    Your rig is pretty balannced now, and you would be better off saving up money for anther 6 to 12 months and then upgrading.

  2. The only reason for such an upgrade would be to get Hyperthreading.

    If you do a great deal of multitasking then it might be worthwhile, but it's almost certainly pointless in this case (as with that gfx card your main focus would seem to be gaming).

  3. For not much more, you could get an A64 3000+ and a s939 mobo. That would make a difference. If you oc, you could easily outperform anything Intel has to offer.
