First of all, GHz isn't everything. The model of the processor matters. What is your budget for a new processor, and what are the full current specs of your machine?

Thanks, I would recommend getting an entirely new PC, either buying or building one. Everyone here will tell you to build one, as you will save lots of money, and we can guide you step by step.

Try to find out what socket the processor is. It should be either 423 or 478. Most likely, it's 478.

If it is in fact Socket 478, and you don't want to get a whole new computer, get something like this:

I can find mine using a program called "CPU-Z." The download link is at the top left. It's under the "CPU" tab, next to "Package." It shouldn't be any different for an Intel, but it just could be. It'd be worth a try.

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
