    Yep saw the other thread. Don't really know what you where thinking/expecting. A 4.1Ghz P4 isn't really going to be able to be difinitavly bested by anything out now (esp in multi-tasking) and you are really video card limited anyway. Heck in most real games, I'm video card limited with my A64 3000+ (at 2.5GHz) and a 6800GT at 420/1180. I didn't ahve the mysterious stuttering problem you where seeing though.

    You have a P4 @ 4.13Ghz, don't bother upgrading until something that is going to be noticeably faster comes along.

    I had a P4-3.2Ghz at 4+Ghz in my Vaporchill for over a year, on the same Abit MOBO he has. Dropped it for my current setup. The AMD whupps the P4's buttox in games, hands down.
