As you can all see my previous post ended up in recommending a new CPU. I did have my eye on a 2100+/2200+, although I have learned that I will need to buy a new motherboard to support these chips. It so happens that my girlfriend is upgrading her beast to a Pentium4 2.0ghz at WHOLESALE prices. We working it out to be about a $80 saving. This then led me to....If I have to get a MOBO to get a few more MHZ, would it be worth getting a new MOBO and a P4 of the same speed? I can still use the same RAM I have, same everything, but I will have to format, thats it? Again I ask......Is it worth the extra dough?
