Default 3300+ vs. 3400+

i have a question relating twards a newcomputer imight be getting.

It has a socket 754, so i have 2 cpu's in mind.

the 3300+ has the best rating (608)

I am wondering for the extra $5 on ebay, i could oc the 3400+ (579) 200mhz to 2.4 and get a better rating.


Has anyone ever done this before? And are the results worth it?

Honestly, I think either one would be a waste of money unless you are just using it as a file server. The technology is too old to be considered "great" at anything.

It's not worth it.
