Need new CPU (Intel)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi ,

I am looking to get a new Intel CPU ,

I have a Dual Core Pentium D 945 , which works ok , but I see now
Core duo 2 E6420 for 150 USD , and I need recommendations
.

Please recommend a good intel CPU also for overclocking, plus good memory and more important a good MOBO, I prefer Asus , but I am open for suggestions.

AMD'ers safe your breath , thanks

Ralph

I'd look at the E6320 or E6420 for the CPU. For the memory, can't beat a good set of G.Skill HZ DDR2 800, excellent RAM and it's pretty cheap now. As for the motherboard, if you're not planning on going SLI or Crossfire, I'd recommend the Asus P5B Plus.

a 4300 is an amazing overclocker, If you use the money you save between the 4300 to 6XXX to get a good heatsink, I would recommend that. for a mobo on a budget, you can not beat asus P5N-E SLi. and get those black g skill hz kit. I think they are around 120 now, that combo can't be beaten. as far as HSF tuniq towers are the best, but hard to find, if you can't find it a zalman 9700 is a good alternative.

Pentium D 945 is not a slow processor,if i were you i'd wait since the new 1333fsb Processors (E6550,E6750,E6850) are coming at July 22,not long left you can get something better for cheaper then.The E6750 will apparently come in at $183 its 2.66ghz with 1333fsb.

If you want to get one right now i'd suggest E6420 and Gigabyte DS3 and Gskill HZs,good combo for the money.

6420

gigabyte s3 or ds3 will comfortably do 400FSB, and higher if you're able to push your memory farther than 800MHz. with a 6420 you'll be on 3.2GHz at 400FSB (x8) and you'll probably need little more than some arctic silver 5 and the stock cooler if you have good airflow in your case and the ambient room temperature isn't too high

with the new E6X50 cpus the perfect match would be a mobo based on p35 chipset such as the P5K series by asus.

hons, i don't know what your budget is, but right now the E6600 is the best dual core processor, and it's only $225 or so.
