Hi,

I'm after a new processor, on a budget. I've been told this - http://www.processorghz.co.uk/u/pp/pentium...pg3000ft/274735 - will suit my system, but I'm wondering whether it's good enough? I mostly use the relevant PC for just general web browsing and listening to music..

Thanks!

Probably would-however, You can find pentium Ds out there for about the same price, I would see if your computer has support for them, or post your computer model and we can look into it for you. Like I said, that one would probably suite you-but if you can get a dual core for the same price that would work, I think it would be better. I picked up a pentium D 930 for $35 (not sure how that translates into euros) off of ebay, so Im sure one could find one pretty cheap for your system to.

That PC uses AMD processors, a pentium 4 or D would not even work, and even if they did, would be a huge downgrade. Im not sure exactly what CPU that one comes with your system, but anything other then the sempron would whoop the snot out of a pentium 4 or D, this is far newer technology if the link you gave me is indeed your computer.
