Here is a picture of the stats. Thats for the core 2 duo one.



This one below is for Am2 X2



Why shouldn't I go with the Pentium D's? The computer I have no is pentium D and its pretty good.
The reason why Core 2 Duo is better, is simply because it is super fast. Faster chaches and front side buses compared to the Pentium Ds. To me, you'd be extremelly happy with a Core 2 Duo.

Intel Core 2 Duo, I'm jealous! I've just got a set up and got a AMD sephron (good for my usage) but damn I would love one of those, though i still prefer AMD, nice set up though!!!

No, get the E6600. The E6700 is too high price for just a bit faster. You can overclock the E6600 to be as fast as it is without hurting the pockets.

The board...Nvidia with Intel never copes preety well. I would recommend an Intel board with the 975 chipset in it. Some are expensive, but they own in all. SLI is supported.

The memory is DDR800 and as far as I remember, the boards supports DDR667. But, that doesn't mean it won't work nd that doesn't mean I'm right. although with the Intel board, it should have DDR800.

For the rest, it's okay.

..Im getting the E6700 for the E6600 price...

As for the RAM, They guy called and explained to me etc. And he changed the mobo to some good one, Built for gaming etc so yeah


http://www.qcgo.com.au/gabba/product...=MBGI8I945GMS2


Does that mobo take any DDR2 Ram??? Does it take DDR? This is confusing lol.. Anyway my dads getting him self a computer too, and he wants me to buy the stuff for him, He isn't a gamer lol. So its all basic stuff in it. Anyway the pic is below, And I think the RAM and mobo that I picked on his, I think they are on mine too..The mobo isnt too bad, And I didnt know what ram to pick so I just picked DDR2 667 which is compatible...I have lots of DDR2 Ram here though, Does the mobo support DDR ram too? Thanks for all the helps and tips guys. If it wern't for you. Lol I would be using a Pentium D now
