IS IT WORTH BUYING AN AMD 3200XP OR JUST GOING OUT AND GETTING AN AMD64. bEARING IN MIND IF I GET A 64 I ALSO NEED TO BUY A NEW MOBO

With your current system, I don't see the point in dishing out that much money on a minor upgrade. You should continue using your existing system until you REALLY need to upgrade.

How very cheery :)

Why is it a bad time for future proofing perris?
I'm not as hardware aware as you guys, so don't take my opinion as anything too seriously.

obviously, with computers, there's never a great time to future proof, but now, I think sound cards aren't gonna spend too much more time on pci, skip pci-x, as that's more for servers, and go straight to pci-e

you can't really buy pci express stuff right now, so you need pci slots...maybe something with a few pci slots, and pci-e for when the time comes

I don't know...you can't really sit around and wait either

If you think your machine is running slow, I would probably suggest to format and re-install windows (with only the essential applications on top). That way, you'll clear out of the crap out of the registry and have a clean start. That's how I kept my machine running at 1500+ for more than a year. :)

I think your system is fine as is, even if you were to upgrade only your CPU the XP 3200 isn't the answer....XP 2600 Moble barton is :)

I say be happy for awhile longer :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
