the only thing that lowers the CPU life is heat. with my OC on my 3600+ from 1.9 to 2.7 the temps are a chilly 15c idle and 34ish while gaming and 38c under max load

well that amd dual core is far faster than the p4 you reccomended . and even if you dont utilise all of its power now i am sure as time passes you will use even more and more till you want something more powerfull

how would a Intel Pentium D 920 2.80GHz 800MHz 4MB Socket 775 CPU stack up against a P4 3.4ghz as far as speed and crap

the pentium D is dual core and would beat the solo core regardless of the speeds cos that means that both core are at 2.8ghz but you cant add it up and get 5.6 cos it don t work like that

depends on what FSB your motherboard supports. if it supports 1066 then yes you could put ANY cpu in expect the new 1333 FSB ones. but i dont think you could afford a C2D anyways

if you can afford the extra cash thats better than most Pentium D's.

i know its a newegg link but i cant navaigate on any other site
