Default Pentium 4 2.8ghz to 3.4 or 3.6ghz- Noticeable Difference?

I've noticed that Pentium 4 Processors are getting cheaper and cheaper. I currently have a 2.8ghz pentium 4 and was wondering how much of a difference in speed I would notice if I replaced it with a 3.4 or 3.6 ghz pentium 4. Would there be a noticeable difference?

wat slot do you have
if your have a 755 slot get a pd or core 2 duo
if not then
over clock your p4 but only if u r not using the stock cooler
you will see a little difference in multitasking and gaming
nothing amazingly huge
but deff a difference

Can anyone recommend me some good overclocking software to overclock my current Pentium 4?

This may help you out: How to Overclock a Dell

I've never tried it personally, though.
