There are people who say they can get it up to 4Ghz without changing the voltage core which I'm sceptical of but then again my power suppy and ram are sorely lacking so I really can't get it above 3.3Ghz.

As far as the cost to performance ratio I'd go with the 805 if you aren't a gamer...but then again I'm jealous of the C2D's.

Maybe I should grab a 915 for $160 since I do more file conversion than gaming.
how is it for gaming?

Obviously it'll lag behind the Core2Duo's but I can play Company Of Heroes, Fable: The Lost Chronicles (I know, it's an older game), Need For Speed Carbon/Most Wanted at full or near full settings. Oblivion and Neverwinter Nights 2 have to scaled down just a bit but no real slowdown even at the stock settings.

If I were able to increase my voltage I'm sure I could get even more performance out of it but as far as an everyday computer which I use for file downloading, file conversion, graphic design, movies, sometimes heavy gaming and general use I'm very happy with it.

It's definitly a solid processor even if it is a bit of an energy hog.

I haven't done any gaming benchmarks since I have no idea how so unfortunately I don't have any hard numbers.

Sorry for the thread jack.

its all good thread jacking is fun, good thing I told him the pd805 wasn't really for gaming.

True. I'd say if you are into gaming you don't want to go below an 820 which is just slightly more expensive but has an 800mhz FSB. A friend of mine picked up an AMD 2.2 with a much smaller cache than my 805 but it has a 2,000mhz FSB which is amazing for games.

I can convert a file in half the time that he can though even though he laughs at me.

Yeah, but a stock E6300 will give a 4GHz Pentium D a run for its money, and with a modest overclock the E6300 will be lightyears ahead.

Obviously it all depends on what you're going to be using the rig for, how much you're willing to spend and for me, the cost to performance ratio.

www.canadacomputers.com has the Pentium D 945 (3.4Ghz) for $180 (CDN) which would pretty much do you until software developers can fully take advantage of the quad core.
