You wont notice a huge difference I would upgrade to an athlon I bought an FIC Au13 with XP2600+ for my kid for 200 bucks now you will se a huge difference if you do something like that. But if you dont want to spend the money just buy the cpu plug it in install the hs and set up the bios and you are good to go
