I have a Dell Precision 530 workstation equipped with a 1.7 Ghz. Xeon w/256 cache and 256 mb rdram, running Win. XP. If I pull this processor and install a 2.4 Ghz. with 512 mb cache and increase my rdram to 512 mb-how much speed increase am I going to see? How much more at 768 ram and at 1.0 GB ram? Which of these improvements will trigger Microsoft to re-register Windows? Can I make any of these improvements without altering the operating system?
