well if you get a barton 2500+ there would be a boost, id look for a barton core, 512KB cache, if it is overclocked right it beats my A64 3000+ on super pi.

well if you had an abit NF7 board I'd recommend you pair it with a 2500+ XP-M as they're basically guranteed to hit 2.4GHz and beyond depending on how much overclocking experience you have...although I dunno how well it'd go with a gigabyte board
