This is about a Dell 1.7Ghz P4 with 256 L2 Cache (400Mhz FSB). I can upgrade to a 2.0, 2.4 or maybe even 2.6 Ghz P4. Same FSB but double the L2 cache to 512.

So, how much would the bigger L2 cache and higher clock speeds give me in terms of performance? Is it worth between $100-$150?

Thanks.

lets make sure of a few things first. Do you know what socket your P4 its into? Or better yet, what model dell do you have?

Thanks for responding. Optiplex Gx240 with a socket 478.

Thanks, but I've been around there. I just wanted to figure out if the new chip would be faster enough to warrant an upgrade.

Related theoretical question, would the new Pentium M (400MHz FSB, Socket 478) work in the Optiplex?
