Whats good people? I'm thinking about upgrading the processor on one of my pc's. Its really for my father. It is an emachines that I bought for like $150 for the tower and monitor in Best Buy's Black Friday sales. This pc looks something like this right now.
-340 Celeron D 2.93GHZ, 533mhz FSB, 256KB L2 Cache
-768 MB Memory (Came with 256mb but added a 512 of Corsair)
-MX4000 128MB PCI Card (Crappy but wanted to stay away from integrated Graphics)
-DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Liteon Drive
The processor that I'm thinking about going to is a Pentium 4 2.4 GHZ Prescott Processor, 533mhz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache. It is definitely better than what I have now even though it is a lower clock speed. I think it is running on Newegg right now for $120. It is also sold by CompUSA for $160 if I need it right away.
Here is the P4 processor that I'm looking at. Click here
Here are my cpu and motherboard specs as well. Thanks a lot ya.
