If you feel like you need the performance boost, then go for it.

I don't see any problem with keeping what you have so long as it does what you want it to do efficently enough.

If it runs your applications, save your money. You wouldn't even notice the difference.

they are both pretty much the same. 3500+ just stands out a little more

P4 does not suck.. it is really good for applications and programs, just not as good as amd for games.

Haha, dont let others opinions completley change yours, obviously if you've been using it for a year it seems to be running fine. I'd use money on a new GFX card.

Hey, how can you say that P4 3.2 Ghz sucks??? I mean, yeah the AMD may be a little better, especially for gaming, but that's still a great processor you have, there's no need to upgrade at all!

You must be rich. Its a 3.2 and you want to upgrade?

I got my 3.2GhZ this Christmas, only my ATI Radeon 9200 is wearing me down.

Btw, its 9200 SE =/
