    Hi all,
    With the arrival of Vista around the corner and Direct X 10 I'm looking to upgrade my pc's hardware but I'd like some advice.
    I currently have a pentium 4 cpu, can I upgrade to a Core 2 Duo without needing a new main board?
    Also my p4 is 3Ghz, do I get better performace from a lesser clock speed cpu if it's Core 2 Duo?
    Finally what sort of heat sink options do you think is best with this new porcessor?
    I'm not exactly limiting myself to a budget but at the same time I don't want to spend over the top amounts of money with this! I'm also looking to upgrade my graphic's card to support Direct X 10 but I only have a pci express slot for graphics, any recommendations?
