k, well were looking at new ones already, and the cheapest one we could find is the one below. We have a dell 2400 with socket 478, will the one below work even tho its .6ghz faster? or can we find a 2.2 ghz one somewhere else? Plus in like 2 months I am building a new computer for this friend.

I can't solder that good. I dont think I can solder nearly that small.

That would be extremely hard for someone who isn't experienced in soldering.

And that CPU looks good. Just think of it as an upgrade, lol.

I used to have the Prescott version of that CPU. Damn good CPU. Easy to OC and it's VERY stable with a good motherboard and RAM. =)
