Planning on getting an old p3-1G Dual chip board out of storage and seeing if it still works.  For now, it might replace an AMD Athalon X2 4200+, but maybe the difference in memory will make a difference. AMD onl had 2.25G, the Intel has 4G.


I just upgraded from a Athlon X2 4600 with 2GB to a Phenom II 945 with 
4GB and it works like a charm. I also did an in place upgrade from 10.04 
to 10.10, and haven't done clean install since 9.04, I think. Machine 
purrs like a kitten.
