    Whats the best upgrade from 3200+ without changing my mobo?

    I currently have a socket 939 mobo.

    Or is it not worth a change and save up for a conroe?

    It's a new architecture which produces better "power per clock" than AMD plus significantly cheaper.

    Basically the E6600 (£240 model) beats AMD's FX-62 (£730 model).

    But somebody else to explain about the technical stuff though because I'm no man to explain that.
