Product Recomendation

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am currently running a 3.2 GHz P4 at 3.48 GHz. I want to upgrade to a 3.4 GHz P4. I suspect I can hit about 3.7 GHz but if I sprung for the extra cash to get the extreme edition would it get a significantly higher clock rate?

P4s, unless you don't start clocking them to or above 4.0ghz? It's not worth going from 3.2 to 3.4 just to get a mere 3.8.

A 400mhz increase won't make a difference.......unless you go 4.0ghz and above.

Just save your money for a C2D set up.

A 650 can do a lot better than that.......3.80ghz? 400mhz increase it's not good at all.

Gotta go above and beyond that to at least see a some difference, like 4.42ghz: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=57903

On air with a Tuniq Tower, except with a 955X.
