Hell loads better than a P4. I remember going from a P4 2.4GHz to my older 3800+ x2 and it crushed data hell loads fater than the P4.

I'm sure it make your mother happier :).. Unless she's like my wife who is on my old P4 and will not use the 3800 x2 :|... Expected though it took ages to get her of the crappy SONY she had lol.
