Re: Need Everyones help.
if he wants to put some $$ into this system he may be able to have a pretty good upgrade (not compared to a current setup, but from what he has as of now), but he'd have to decide which option (upgrade or rebuild) would be the most cost efficient for him...
TigerDirect still has an socket 939 AMD dual core cpu, but it's almost $200, not practical at all, but he could look on craigslist, ebay or other websites where people sell old cpus, I've seen dual core 939s really cheap, even if he just upgraded to about 2GBs of DDR 3200 he'd see a big improvement in performance...
