Hi Guys

I got the 805D chip @ 3.6 and it's pretty good for games, I was wondering what's the better chip out of these 2 for games and apps?

Intel Core 2 E6300 these chips can go to 3GHZ $280AU to buy
Pentium D 945 3.40Ghz I heard these chips can get pass 4GHZ $250 AU

I just want something to max my MSI X1900XT out.

Cheers

E6300 by far. No competition from the D945. You'll need way over 5GHz on a D9xx CPU to match an E6300 at 3.0 GHz. Also, the E6300 can hit over 3.0 easily (I've seen 3.5GHz on air)

Thanks for that looks like I might have to go with a E6300.

Mainly into gaming and using a program called MAME
www.mame.net this program is very CPU hungry.

Does anyone know if a 945 @ 4.0GHZ would be a lot faster in mame then a E6300 @ 3.0GHZ?

Trust me. The E6300 at 3.0 GHz would beat the D945 at 4.0 GHz in any application you can imagine. The architecture is just so superior.

Personally, I think it's a bad idea to put an E6300 on that 945P chipet mobo.
Even though it'll work, I'm not sure if I've ever seen a 945P chipset as high as 300fsb.

It'll still run better than the D945

I agree nasgul.

If you want to get an E6300 (which would be a VERY good idea). I suggest you trade/sell your board and get a Gigabyte S3 motherboard. And you'll be good to go.

Hi

Yeah I was thinking of getting a Gigabyte 965 S3 board, cause I heard these can go as high as 450 FSB.

I think the one I have atm the 945P S3 only goes to 360FSB.

If I set a divider on my memory I should be able to get 3GHZ with a 965 S3 board.

If the super PI test's are quicker with the E6300 then a 945 then MAME will run great.

Cheers

Josh

945P as high as 360fsb? I've never seen it that high, come to think of, I think I've seen the 945P only one single time doing upto 300fsb but that's it, only ONE single time. And yes it was stable from what I saw and it was in this forum but who's rig was it? I can't remember.

IMO, your best bet will be the GIGABYTE P965 S3.

Look on Anandtec for some good SiSandra scores on c2 chips. Their Integer and floating point calulations are far above any other cpu before them. In retrospect look at my cpu scores for a comparison of the c2's ability to 'feed' a GPU.

PD805 @ 3.2ghz-> Integer 8x iSSE4= 38,755
Floating-point x4 iSSE2= 32,354

E6700 @ 2.75ghz-> Integer 8x iSSE4= 150,366
Floating-point x4 iSSE2= 81,491

E6700 @ 3.4ghz-> Integer 8x iSSE4= 186,614
Floating-point x4 iSSE2= 100,767

Here you can see, as far as graphical calculations go...C2D's are roughly 2-3x as 'potent' as the previous gen Dual Cores. These scores even stomp the 955XE into the ground, as 'they' typically tested in the high 40's- low 50 thousands.
