I have a Duron 1.1 Ghz at 100 fsb. On 3DMark 2001 SE i get around 5000 marks. Is my Duron holding back my scores and framerates in games. If so what scores do you think i would get upgrading to an Athlon XP 1700+, or would it not be a great increase.
Yeah you can get a 1700 right now for $55!!! Go with the upgrade for $50 it's a great performance increase.

I'd say you'll be close to my 3DMark score afterwards. Check my sig.
