What can the 775 still do? please help!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
okay, so i was wondering, how would a core 2 duo E8200 run now-a-days? paired with http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0385044

with 2gb or 4gb of ddr3 ram, on windows 7,

I'm very curious, because i miss my core 2 duo, and was wondering how itd run, what kind of games could it play? ect.

any Call of Duty game. WOW, starcraft, BFBC2, bf3 with micro stutters, tetris, Deer Hunter, i have a q6600 and i play bf3 on medium/high settings @60fps. the 775 chipset is still pretty good. but its fading for sure.

I can still pretty much have everything in my games maxed out and i run fine. But i do believe the 775 platform is seeing it's final days.

Rather than simply upgrade Umbra (sig rig) i think i'd rather retire it in honor of those days. I doubt i'd ever find another extreme edition CPU at the deal i got this one for anyway, plus i think LGA775 just had hotter processors and watercooling was more justified at the time. Pretty sure the QX6700 was the first Core 2 Quad on the market, too.

In truth, I wouldn't have the money to upgrade anyway biggrin.gif.
