I browse the web and watch online video content. In addition, I also like to game, but I cannot do so any more with my current processor. I will also soon start to edit and upload video to my online vlog, so my question is, will swapping out the old Celeron D for the new Pentium give a noticeable performance increase?
By the way, the upgrade is only £65.
My current machine specs are:
Celeron D (as mentioned above) 1GB 533MHz RAM 512MB GDDR3 Radeon HD 3450 160GB PATA HDD
PS, my current PSU's maximum power output is only 300W, will this be sufficient?
My motherboard fits processors designed for Socket 775. My Celeron D fits into Socket 775, as does the new Pentium. In addition, the maximum FSB speed that my motherboard can take is 1066MHz, so I believe it should be compatible.
Seems a bit steep when you can buy Motherboard and CPU upgrade that would do a lot better job for not much more. But you would then need to check that you old hardware would work with the new board. And consider buying a Good 550 Watt PSU
