post #21 of 33
The guy says $140 max for the cpu, if he upgrades to C2D he will spend easy $600 for that.

Core2s are $189 (E6300). If you don't have the money save up. You'll be the ones kicking yourselves later.

Enough with the switch to C2D advices. He wants to upgrade his system not to build another rig...

We're AMD fanboys because we're saying to stop suggesting something he can't afford? Yeah, that makes sense.

Maybe wait until you can afford a C2D. They are not expensive. Get a E6300.

How about this. Get the PD for now, with a core2 motherboard and upgrade later when you run into a little cash? You say you fold alot so the Pentium D, being dual core, is really nice for that. You wont break your wallet doing that and you are able to upgrade in a year or so when a Core2 is cheaper. Probably once kentsfeild is released. This is a cheap solution that is relatively future proof.

Really?

How is buying an AMD CPU for a Dell pre-built upgrading his existing system?

How is buying a 775 based Intel CPU for a 478 based Dell pre-built upgrading his current system?

He has already stated he will be buying a new motherboard at least, although "I know what I need to do" is incredibley vague so I could be wrong. Doesn't sound like a simply CPU swap to me. And if he is just upgrading, then people should stop suggesting AMD chips, as they won't work without a board upgrade as well. And if he is considering a 775 based Intel then he is likely looking at buying new RAM as almost all 775 based boards use DDR2....


To the thread starter, I suggest you give some more information into exactly what you are planning on doing if you want some useful, constructive advise.

The C2D may actually be a very good option for you, or it may not......you are already buying a new motherboard evidently, and they are not all expensive, so if you are planning on spending $140 on your CPU and $150 for a new board to run that CPU and some new RAM, then it's possible a good system can be made.

However, simply asking which CPU you should get between an AMD and an Intel from last year doesn't do much other than start an AMD v. Intel war.

I could easily affor a x6800 right now. I'm just putting small stuff in this computer to keep it running for some other things. For a mobo, case, CPU, Ram and maybe a PSU $500.
