would it be worth it to go from a athlon 64 3500+ to a 4000+? that is all my motherboard will let me go.

Hi, IMHO ... No!

If you are looking for more speed, increase your RAM and do a thorough clean up of your hard drive.

I imagine you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference.

Have a look at the cpu charts on Tom's Harware; you may be able to see how the 2 processors compare in benchmarks. You usually find you're spending £ hundreds to shave a couple of minutes off encoding a dvd or gaining a couple of extra frames per sec in some games.

Not worth the hassle / expense IMO
