Default processor comparison

the processor i want to get at newegg.com is sadly out of stock at the moment so its wither wait for that one:
(1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116255

or get this one:
(2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116262

now no.2 is $80 cheaper than no.1 with only a .2ghz difference, that i can see. Are there any other differences between the two of them? that makes no.1 $80 more than no.2?

go for the cheeper one no difference
but if u can afford it go for the intel core 2 duo even if its the 1.8 ghz one
it will kick the pentuim d ass
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115016
187$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115015
165$
(only difference is clock speed and they overclock like crazy with good cooling)

Default Re: processor comparison

kinda weird i made a post saying that i couldnt use core 2 duos cause my mother board cant handle it... the most advanced processor i can put in it is pentium D and then pentium 4 then celeron D. I have a celeron D in it right now so the no.2 pentium D will be leaps and bounds above the celeron

now im gonna have to start another thread to see if that pentium D will work ok with an 8800 GTS video card...i hope it wont bottleneck with that in it, probably not though

i dont care how dear your current mobo may be to you, but it would NOT be worth buying a pentium d at this stage, especially one for that much.

hell you can buy a core 2 duo and a cheap mobo to support it for $200-$250.

no excuse to go the pentium way, trust me you will be beating yourself up quite a bit later on.

either dont upgrade at all, or make the actuall shift to a platform that will be worth the money.

here is a good combo:
gigabyte mobo that supports quad core for future upgrading.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128042
Core 2 duo e4400 at 2.0 ghz.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115014

all for $235, if you are at the point where you cant even spend $50 more to get a core 2 duo instead of a pentium, then you should not be making an upgrade right now.

Default Re: processor comparison

heres the link for the motherboard gotta remember its an emachines i cant even overclock anything in the damn thing the emachines model is w3507 but it has 2gigs of ram at 533mhz speed...i didnt want to spend the money just to have the ram be knocked back to 533mhz, ill try that when i have money to burn lol http://www.intel.com/products/mother...ggc2/index.htm

well right now i cant work so money is slim pickings until i actually can start working so im nit picking, once i can work ill get a fancy schmancy gaming computer built, but since this computer was a gift to me i might as well do what i can with it, then give it to the wife...shes using a dell that doesnt even have AGP or PCI-E so it will be good for her to use
