Re: Random Chit Chat
I got a friend that is willing to give me his old computer. Hopefully his parents didn't throw it out yet. I will be able to salvage the 512MB DDR, and 80GB IDE HDD from it to add to my old computer. When it's Christmas time, I will probably pick up a cheap $20 500W PSU from Micro Center. Then I will have a old computer with an P4 @ 2.66GHz, 1GB DDR, 80GB HDD, and a 8800GT in it. I will probably bring this computer down and give it to my parents to stream videos as I don't think I need it.
How much of an performance will I get in games if I were to buy an Q8300 and replace it with my E7200? The stock clocks is about the same, but the cache on the Q8300 is higher. I was also told that the C2Q are not true quads as they are just 2 C2D in one. Not sure if that's true.
