3000 will run like a p4 3ghz but really run at like 2.2ghz or something like that. dont know how much of a difference you will see. What are you doing with the machine?

You'll see some improvement I think, although not a massive amount. When I went from a 2.6 to a 3Ghz I saw only a slight improvement.

The 3000+ Will beat a 3.2Ghz Intel in gaming anyday. Get a Winchester Core 3200+, which will run @ 2.0Ghz
