I have a single core(specs in sig), newegg has a cheap x2 939 chip for $90 shipped.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Toledo 2.0GHz Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3800DAA5CD - OEM


Should I go with it? Will I notice that much of a difference?

Well you won't notice anything for gaming, but for any multitasking stuff I think you would notice a big difference.

I was looking at this asus mobo w/ this x2 cpu (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2945298&CatId=1619) before my bp popped.

I want one.

I upgraded from the same processor to a x2 3800+ the day they were released.

In every way, shape and form; you will see a difference. The 3800 is an amazing chip and I do not regret paying $425 for it at the time.

good luck and go for it.

that's the amd dual-core patch from AMD. Is it necessary? no. However, it will give you better optimization for your dual cores.

and a very cool howdy-do to you too Hypertension!
