Re: dual processor - worth upgrading ?

Nora, you can check with www.ambry.com. After some spot checking you are looking at $35 to ~$200. Depending on the part number.

If you are using your Cpu average between 40-60% or you want to add other services such as print server, or other services that use overhead it may be worth considering. Of course for $35 or so it sure can't hurt.
