  1. Hey, guys. Here's a question: Would this processor here
    be a good upgrade for my system, or would this processor suffice? I am including a system report I made with Everest as an attachment to this message with my system's motherboard config. THANKS FOR THE ADVICE!!!

    Note: This attachment contains the mobo configuration information you need. My recent configuration is in my profile.

    Oh hell. Not only do you have a Celeron, but said Celeron doesn't even run on the lowly 533MHz FSB. It's on the 400MHz FSB. A CPU that is 2500MHz (25x100) is going to be noticeably slower than a CPU with the exact same specs and speed, but is 12.5x200.

    It is definitely worth is to spend the extra $7 and get the 2.8 GHz. You should notice an improvement due to doubled bus speed, quadrupled cache, and 300MHz of extra speed.

    OK...THANKS! Also I was wondering...The system that I want to upgrade the processor on is a Compaq S5010NX. However, it also needs a PSU upgrade (it is a cheap 250W PSU). Would this PSU from CompUSA work with my mobo AND fit in my case

    Well, that was rude. NOT EVERYBODY WANTS TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER...SOME PEOPLE ARE PERFECTLY FINE WITH OUTDATED EQUIPMENT....Thanks for the info, though! But, do you really think that HT processor will work in my computer? It doesn't support HyperThreading...
