CPU Change

  knipex 12:11 20 Jul 2007

I’m presently running vista on a 1.86 core 2 duo cpu.
As my mobo supports the 2.66 version I’m thinking of upgrading.
I would like to hear from somebody who has done this and ask if there was a worthwhile improvement.

I think you'll notice a difference but it won't be vast unless you're a gamer or do a lot of video editing.

Have you tried overclocking it? I have a C2D E6600 (2.4GHz) overclocked by 33% to 3.2GHz and to be honest it's only when rendering video that I notice a difference.
