Can anyone tell me how to find the full specificatiions of my Dell Dimension XPS t-500 cpu. Ive been doing a lot of reading since i joined geekstogo, i won't pretend to understand all of it but i do know that there have been major advances since i purchased my cpu 4 yrs ago. ive read about new developments with processors, video cards, 3d graphics etc. how do i compare processors like AMD, Duron, Pentium 4(mine is a 3) and Celeron. What is 1ghz and where does my cpu rank?

Should i look into a new one? i use my cpu mostly for listening and copying music, cataloging my comic books( about 15000 all with photos) and surfing the net. I would like to start copying dvds as well.

do i need more cpu power?

By the way thanks to you guys i now enjoy uisng my cpu again, i havent gotten all of the bugs out yet(were still working on it) but im about 95% there.
and all it cost me was some time.

thanks a million.

You're welcome! Thanks for the kind words.

This link might give you an idea how your system compares to today's.

For the applications you describe, I really see no need to upgrade. Gaming, video encoding, gaming, MP3 ripping, gaming <_< are usually highly CPU dependant. If you were to purchase a new system, you would experience a noticble increase in performance, but unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket, I really don't think it's a required upgrade.
