I currently have the following:
1.6GHZ P4 Williamette with a 400MHZ FSB
-Abit SD7-533 Motherboard
-768 MB PC2100 DDR Memory
and I am wanting to upgrade the cpu to a:
-2.8GHZ P4 Northwood with a 400MHZ FSBhttp://www.buy.com/prod/intel-pentium-4-2-.../208166365.html
I would go ahead and upgrade everything, but a new processor or some additional memory is all that I can afford right now. This will only be a temporary fix. I am guessing that a CPU upgrade will be worth it due to the fact that when I check physical memory usage, I usually come up with (Free=400-470MB), but my CPU usage is constantly maxed out at 100%.
Is it worth it? I mainly use my computer for multitasking and watching online videos. Rarely do I use it for gaming.
Any input would be appreciated.
