Default Re: Intel Duo or Quad

It doesn't feel faster if you're running basic applications. I mean if all you do is run Word, go online, check emails, play solitaire or pinball, etc., play half life, there's no difference at all. Once you start piling on the intense multitasking applications, you'll notice a difference. I don't think the frequency is any higher than a regular CPU, it's a matter of how much you can run side by side without a significant slow down.

Hmm, I'm looking at the E6850. The prices woill have dropped before I even get it. If price looks affordable, and around that price, I'll get it. Heck, I got a P5KC as selection, so why not? Just some nice DDRIII-1350 and that would be nice.

Wait, so DDR3 is already out?!?! OMG, when the crap did this happen? Man, I'm so behind on PC stuff.

Boy, just took a glance at the RAM. Very, very expensive. Not just that but even the motherboards for them are expensive. I think it's better to hold off on that. There's no difference in DDR2 and DDR3 speeds anyways.

Yep, it's lasting for a longer time.

Theirs currently not any huge peformance difference, but DDRIII is still faster and worthwhile looking at when it drops. Peformance is not the only reason for using DDRIII, lower consumption, lower prices, etc will all play a role in the near future.

Yeah they are wayy too pricey nowadays. I don't believe that that increase in performance warrants such a huge price raise, so I will wait a couple of months until it drops. Preferably 6 months so I will get some my next upgrade.
