Default 2.0ghz to 2.8ghz

i currently have a pentium 4 2.0 ghz non-hyperthreading cpu - is it worth it to get a 2.8ghz? will i see a really good improvement?

Yeah, you would see a huge difference. Not just because its a 2.8ghz, but because its HT. I think if your going to get a 2.8ghz, then just bit the bullet and buy the 3.0ghz LGA775 prescott. A little price difference.

yea, if you are planning on upgrading, then you should just get the 3.0ghz for an extra 30 bucks.

no the 2.8 isnt hyperthreading - thats the thing and neither is the 2.0 that im using right now - my mobo only supports the 3.06 northwood hyperthreading and i cant find that anywhere- if i get the 2.8 non-hyperthreading will i still see a good increase?

Yeah you would, but i would suck it up and wait to buy a new PC. If you upgrade, your video card will hold ya back, your ram will hold ya back ect.
