Hi i have a intel pentium 4 1.6g and was thinking of buying a intel pentium 2.4g, it is compatable with my motherboard but i was wondering will it make a big difference

If that's a northwood 1.6 (512 cache), I would try overclocking it first, if your board has a 133 fsb setting. Switching to a 2.4 400 fsb cpu won't be very cost effective. For the price of the cpu, you could almost pay for an athlon 64 socket 754 combo deal.

A big difference? Not likely. A noticable difference? Probably. It depends what you're using it for.
