I am considering upgrading my CPU. But I am not sure if the benefit will be great enough and what my system is able to handle.
I currently have;
Dell Dimension 8300
Intel i875PE chipset
800Mhz bus speed
P4 2.6 Ghz HT Processor
512Kb L2 cache
I was thinking about getting a P4 3.2 ghz processor, but am not sure if this is 100% compatible so some advice would be welcome. Also, is this the fastest I can get on this Mobo?
Can somebody also recommend a good CPU benchmark utility , where I can also compare to other processor so I can make the best jedgement call of price -> performace. ( I have pc wizard 2006, but the comparisons are not so fgood and complete enough for me).
