  1. 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.
  2. How the price for a 2.4 should be next to nothing.

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