Just wondering. If I want to upgrade my speed, would that be a new processor? And if so, for a Dell OptiPlex GX100, would I need an Intl or an AMD processor?

Speed is really a compination of all your parts. Your system parts are listed here: http://support.dell....en/ug/specs.htm. I think that the only thing that would be worth doing to this computer is maybe an extra 512MB stick of RAM. DDR 100mhz is what is what you would need. That along with keeping your computer running a minimal ammount proccesses is about all that will be worth it to you.

I'm sorry but your computer has reached the age were it's time to rebuild. Putting money into that computer will be like burning your cash.

Well, I'm trying to kinda rebuild. In addition to more speed, I'm upgrading to an 80gig HD, and 512 of RAM. Not sure what else I'm gong to need, though.

I'll repeat what I said, it's time to rebuild. The problem is the Ram you are using now or that your going to buy for your current build is not compatable with current uptodate systems. Also the new hard drive will not speed anything up. I'm in the same boat as you. It's time to rebuild. With the competition today, it's much cheaper to buy a computer then what it was a while back.
