next hardware I consider to upgrade is a CPU, man I'm so tired dealing with slideshow issues for years. Every time I upgrade, the fps imrove for a while, then it worsens again.
OK, I have a 3.0 on P4800E
1). would 3.4 help my life in any way?
let's say I have 9-12 fps at a typical custom airport (payware, freeware, anything) with sliders NOT maxed. So, would 3.4 would give me 14-15 fps under the same conditiones?
To rephrase, I need a 3-4 fps improvement, would 3.4 do it or no? Only 3 fps, that's it, only 3 little ones.
2). does my mobo support 3.4? I heard my mobo's highest potential is 3.2. True or false?
3). I haven't seen a 3.6 CPU with 478 socket, is 478 socket CPU kaput?
4). If my mobo does indeed support a 3.4, and I put it in, would I have to reinstall Windows again?
