Hi folks, I am new to the forum. I am a web designer and recently my pc passed away and my boss bought me a new one! It is a P5600, 3500+, 512MB DDR, etc. This is not really ideal for my needs, but it was free! So I have ordered a Sapphire Technology Radeon X1300 512MB PCI-E graphics card, and another 3x 512MB PC3200. This should improve things quite a bit, as I often need to have Photoshop, Dreamweaver and a browser all open at the same time. (at the moment I may as well have a hourglass screensaver!)
My main question is 'can I upgrade my 3500+ to a X2 chip?' I work a lot in Photoshop, and I am sure the dual core would make a significant difference.
