Default CPU upgrade

Current PC :
Athlon XP 2400+
GA7VA Gigabyte Mobo
80 GB Segate HD 7200 Rpm
CD Burner
Ati Radeon 9800 Xt
1024 MB PC2700 Ram

Now i would like to upgrade my CPU
to an Athlon Xp 3000+ 333FSB but i am not shore if it is worth it.

See the 2400+ runs at 2010Mhz and the 3000+ only Runs at around 2100Mhz.

So if i was to upgrade would i experience much of a speed bost or what?? or is there no point and i should save up for a Athlon 64 and new mobo.??

the Athlon XP3000+ is better, you would notice the difference. But i would recommend saving money for a while and then buying a new mobo and an athlon 64

I agree with them, if you can you would get a hige boost from an AMD64, but if you don't want to spend lots of money and want it now that is fine

Wait on the Mobo, cause the BTX form factor is right around the corner.
