Hi again

I'm currently running and Athlon XP 2000+ processor, my PC is less than a year old but I want to keep on top of upgrading it.

If I wanted to upgrade my processor, is there anything out there that would beat this at the moment ? (By beat I mean if I replaced it I would experience better performance/more power).

Thanks y'all !

domtheboy, in my opinion, unless you can increase the processor speed by 50%, you will not notice a significant improvement in performance. Will your motherboard take an Athlon XP2700+, and is it worth spending the best part of £300 for a new processor?

I agree with Gongoozler, nut would also ask do you really need a new processor?

Gongoozler and Elrond are correct, you already have a very fast CPU. If you feel your not getting the most form your PC, then maybe a look at the Graphics card and/or memory will help.

As for a CPU I would wait until a 4000xp comes out, for you to notice a difference!!
