Default athlon xp 3000+ good upgrade?

Hey everyone. Can someone Tell me if an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ would be a good upgrade from a 2000+, and would I see any performance difference between than and my old 2000+. The 2000 is at 1.7, and i belive that the 3000+ is a 2.167 stock. Anyway, I need a good proc for Counter Strike Source, because right now i think thats the thing thats slowing me down in the game. Average fps: low 40's, and during a huge firefight drops literally down to about 12 fps. Any help would be Fantastic. Thanks

athlon xp 2000+ (1.7)
ATI Radeon 9800 pro 128mb
1024 megs Corsair value ram PC2700 333
Soyo K7VMP2 motherboard
350 psu
Windows XP Pro
WD 250 GIG HDD @ 7200 RPM

I think Athlon XP's are socket A's, right? I really don't know of another way you can go, but that upgrade seems good!

Yea, it can't be the graphics card for instance, because I have that and have no problems with Counterstrike source... Make sure though that you have the latest drivers from ATI. These can introduce speed boosts in newer games

Yea that CPU sounds fine.

Now, let's not get confused here... 99nasha, you're getting (at least what you said) an Athlon 64 3000+, and he's getting Athlon XP 3000+... They're different!
