Do you think it is worth getting the Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz over the 3GHz?

Nope not for the price of just 200MHz

I seriously doubt that you would see a huge performance boost from 3 to 3.2GHz. And just look at the price difference. I don't think it's worth that kind of money.;)

no, it isn't worth it at all. You probably can't even tell the difference without the aide of benchmarking tools. I could be wrong, but there can't be THAT much difference between the two. I personally would never spend that much extra for such a marginal performance increase. It just costs THAT ($300?) much more because it's the latest and greatest, but in a few months it's cost difference will be more in line with it's performance difference. In my opinion, you could spend that money on something that could make much more of a difference to your system.

If you have the cash and not worried about it burning a hole in yer wallet then, maybe, it'sl ok Any other way, meer mortals will probably not be able to afford it :rolleyes:

Its insane money for a CPU with only 200mhz difference as Dazz said. :eek:

no, way too much money for not much more performance, better off overclocking the 3.0ghz (or better still a lower CPU and save yourself a wad of cash)
