I have this dell dimension 5150 it has Pentium 4 ht 3.2ghz
would a dual core be significantly faster? The ppl at dell said i could only buy a pentium 4 ht 3.4ghz from them for $420
anything else will fry my motherboard and eveything else in it
is this just a marketing scheme or is it true
listen to them, NEVER
ask dell for upgrading instructions. The person on the other line of the phone knows less about computer then you do, he's just a robot (he's really a person, but knows nothing) following a computers instructions. In most cases it's a grid on a computer and they follow the grid based on the yes/no instructions from you.
You won't notice a difference between 3.4 and 3.3GHz on a P4, the chip alone is worthless now. That chip should be sold for no more then $20 if that.
