Default Pentium D 805 vs Pentium D 820

Which one do you prefer. The 820 looks better, but the 805 is said to oc real nice.

EDIT: Sorry for posting in the general hardware and software section. Mods move it if you want.

The FSB of the 805 is only 533, while the FSB of the 820 is 800 MHz. But that also means that the 805 has some great potential for overclocking.

Seeing as they're the same price retail on newegg, I'd go for the 820. The 820 will OC at least as far as the 805. If you're willing to go the OEM route and you're getting an aftermarket cooler, I'd say get the 805 though since it's only $70:

the 805 is a light version of the 820. It's a budget Dual Core CPU. Get the 820. FSB of 533 compared to a FSB of 800MHZ

Default Re: Pentium D 805 vs Pentium D 820

because of the low prices, go with the better one. The price difference is negligible between the two processors. Might want to check in on the 9xx or the C2D,
