I'm sure it's a hell of a lot better than the AMD Athlon X2 I have right now. LOL. But it's probably a respectable processor in any case. I mean, it was the precursor to C2D's and C2Q's.

I'd tell you what I thought, but I guess I'm not worth listening to.

If you can give me a day or two, I might be able to reconsider. My mom is going to possibly let me spend all $1200 of college money they saved up for the major university they wanted me in over the course of 12 years. So yeah, If you give me a day or two, I may reconsider.

Keep in mind the reason I said that. Someone said that you sounded like Fox News (and I agree, sorry) and you said they were not worth listening to. Which then comes back to you which is why I said what I did.

Well uh i looked up some reviews and man you can get alot better performance if you just build new. the proc isnt worth getting.

I could try and build you a comp on newegg (i spend alot of time looking at deals) with a $600 max does that sound good? would you consider letting me try one out for you?

The Pentium D processors are low end dual core CPUs. They do not work well in a high performance gaming machine.
