Did you buy that rockin fast dell with the m64 32 meg 4X AGP!@!!!! graphics?
It's ok dude, youre gettin a dell.
Seriously though, performance of a system is more than just the cpu under the hood, it is the total sum of the parts, find out what he has thats better than what you have and theres your answer. A p4@2ghz with 32 megs of sdram will be eaten alive by a p2 333 with 512 megs of sdram.

We replaced his P3 733 128mg with P3 1Gig 768 mg. The 733 runs much better.
How it come? Does it mean really from what I can read in CFWDGAFSR's post that they just replaced the only processor and added RAM, leaving the rest intact?
Is it possible that there is something else involved when you replace just a processor (BIOS update, memory timing changed, cache disabled [sorry for that, just guessing], an adapter board issue if any, etc.)?
What about in order to troubleshoot the problem let the P3 1Gig to run with only 128 MB of RAM,
vc. putting the P3 733 MGz back but with 768 MB of RAM?
Sort of an easy test to see what happens.
