of the third one listed.
i have an amd athlon 64 3400+ running its stock speed of 2.2 mhz.
my computer seems to bog down for routine chores. just having up three internet screens with a few tabs, being active with my clicking and the computer takes five seconds to do what i told it and if i am not patient i will have to reset what i am doing.
my friend who is much more computer savy than me showed me an open box hp pavilian a6330f computer with vista (which i don't like) and 3gb ram (which i know vista eats up 1/3 of that anyways) compared to my 512 mb (i know i know). i'm considering buying it at $429 (reg price 649). it has dual amd processors. it also has a 500 gb hard drive, which i probably don't need. it does have nividia ge force 6150 graphics card compared to my integrated card.
i like a few of the upgrades but i was thinking about upgrading my processor and ram instead. i can get 1gb ram for 60-70 and i don't know that i need a video card really cause i only watch shows like lost online, and my internet connection is usually not that fast with verizon air card. soo... what are my options as far as upgrading this processor, it's a socket 939 according to cpuid. i'd like to price out a dual core processor if it will be compatable. if not, can i get a faster processor to upgrade or perhaps overclock the one i have now. opinions?...
