300 Mhz isn't going to make a very big difference unless it's dual core. I would just put that money towards a new computer or build.

well i don't want to buy another cpu just want to increase multitasking a little bit, i'm not expecting huge improvements just slight ones, thought with the faster FB and processor speed i could add a couple years to my rig

test the cpu using this http://www.mcsstudios.com/en/mcscpu.htm
i tested my p4 northwood 2.8ghz and 3309 so benchmark yours and see what you get and if it not a considerable difference dont bother
also i tyested my 2.53 prescot celeron D and got 2949 so you should score more than that i think as the only diff between the 2 would be cache with the celeron having 256k and P4 hacing 512K oh and the celeron has sse3
