Yesterday vs. Today: Pentium 4 vs Core2Duo (Comparison)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I have gotten my parts and I am about to build a new rig, and I was wondering how a P4 compares To a C2D at the same clock speed. Well in a few hours we will have the answers. The answers will be skewed as I am using a different chipset/Ram size and speed/different HD. As for right now, I have the results on the P4 2.4.
