Processor speed means nothing these days.

Assuming you mean the Dell Dimension 2350 desktop machine, this is an old Socket 478 system, the processors are not made any more. Anyway you wouldn't notice the difference between 2Ghz and 2.4Ghz.

My parents have this machine, and I have looked into this very same thing before when I was very new. I ended up not purchasing another processor because any of them I did find used or new was way more expensive than you would think it would be. Old technology like that is actually more expensive than new.

As I have learned tons more since then, Neil Jones is correct, you wouldn't even notice a difference between 2.0 and 2.4ghz, especially on that system. That system runs at a FSB (Front Side Bus) of only 400Mhz. If you are looking for more speed, the only way to get it is buy a new or newer computer.

Good luck, and ask questions if you would like. :)
