Hello there,
I am considering upgrading my compaq presario computer.
My present computer has a 347 mhz pentium chip
How does a amd athlon xp2400+ processor 2.o Ghz compare

The compaq package includes heaps of other extra stuff at half the cost of my original .

Well apart from the fact that the processor is about 5.5x faster, than your present model you should see significant change.

1 thing to note.
Brandname PC's will sell you 256MB of ram, and you are expected to run Winxp of that, (which is ridiculous) you should always upgrade to 512MB, and it will only cost you a few extra dollars.
