i have a p4 3.2 ghz HT prossesor and a abit vt7 motherboard do u guys think i shud change my prossesor to a amd 64 bit +3500??
NO, my brother has P4 3 ghz/ 2 gig ram/6800GT, and it runs D3 and HL2 without a hitch....having said that, I'm a fan of AMD's right now, and any of the AMD 939 3000/3200/3500 are the ideal gaming chips.

One could buy a AMD 3000 now, and upgrade it to a 4400 I meg cache later on, that would be a strong upgrade path, whereas going from 3500 to 4400 isn't as great.

I wouldn't do it, there's not a lot of room for a huge improvement... a little better with gaming.

No way, don't bother upgrading yet. Wait until you can get a big ol performance boost out of it before you upgrade. And when you do upgrade, send me your current pc :-)
Pentium rocks.

System Specs:
Pentium 4 - 2 GHZ processor
MOTHERBOARD - Gigabyte Ultra GA-8PE667
VIDEO - NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500 OC
HARDDRIVE - 120 Gig Maxtor
MEMORY - 512 MB ram
