I'm sure a hardware guru who is familiar with both those motherboards will
come along, but I'm going to say no. Even though the processor on the new
board is better, you would see a bigger speed increase if you would
increase your RAM to 3GB. Also, slowness is often caused by too many
unnecessary programs/processes running in the background. Without knowing
whether you've optimized your Startup and without knowing what programs you
normally run, that's all I can say.
