-There's so much hype surrounding the Core 2 Duo's, I wouldn't mind having one myself, but they are just sooo friggin expensive.

My current computer specs are:
CPU=Intel P4 @ 1.6GHZ
MOTHERBOARD=Abit SD7-533
RAM=DDR PC2100 @ 768MB

Do you think I would notice a change if I decided to upgrade to the forementioned components? I have a budget of about $400-$500.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

RAM: G.Skill DDR2-800 1GB:

Total should be around $450.
