    i'm having a PC with intel p4 3.0GHz with Intel D865GBF motherboard, 1GB DDR Ram (400MHz), ATA100/ 80GB Hard disk, Nvidia GeFores 5200FX Graphics card with creative Live! 24bit sound card. i'm going to sell my processor and motherboard ONLY and buy AMD Athlon 64 1800+ processor and Gigabyte motherboard. do you think that buying that processor and motherboard will increase my current system performance? note that i'm ONLY going to change the Motherboard and Processor. :)

    In a word, no.

    The 1.8 gig processor would be a 3000+ If you went with something like a 3500 or greater, then you might notice an improvement. It would depend on what you were doing; encoding video, playing a game, etc. For video encoding, you would probably notice a decrease in performance; for games probably no change.

    In short it is not worth the change.
