If that's a northwood 1.6 (512 cache), I would try overclocking it first, if your board has a 133 fsb setting. Switching to a 2.4 400 fsb cpu won't be very cost effective. For the price of the cpu, you could almost pay for an athlon 64 socket 754 combo deal.

How the price for a 2.4 should be next to nothing.

A big difference? Not likely. A noticable difference? Probably. It depends what you're using it for.

If you download CPU-Z it will tell you some of your system info including CPU and memory
