Default is upgrading worth it???

i have an offer from a computer reseller guy who is pretty close to me... he offered me a 2.4/533 fsb for a very reasonable price... do you guyz think that upgrading from 2.0/400 to a 2.4/533 will be worth it??? my mobo supports 533, so no need to upgrade my board.. its an intel 850emv2

like a trade-in deal?

your 2.0/400 is just fine...actually, more than fine. i wouldn't give him more than 75 USD for the upgrade. if he wants more than that, forget it.

I would just stay with what you have.

As stated before I wouldn't spend any more than $50-$60 Bucks.

Just my 2cents
