I have to agree. The motherboard and the processor, not including the cost of installation, would cost somewhere next to 200 US. Chances are, that with the new processing speed, you will find the other hardware lacking at sometime in the future, or have to begin to replace things that are wearing out, such as your hard drive.
If you shop around(you might consider AMD processors which are every bit as good as Intel), you can find towers, with generous RAM , HD space and even faster CPUs, for between 450-650 dollars after rebates, etc. In the long run, this would be more cost effective than replacing the MB and CPU in your current computer.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
