Yes, you should "dump it." The 486 was a good processor in it's time, but it's time has passed If you want a Pentium, you will probably have to buy a new motherboard to put it in anyway, because the processor slots are different Modem speed is also a factor, as well as memory The story gets longer, as well as more expensive The investment will be worth it, though.
