Pioneerisloud is switching to the dark side! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
x2 vs. PD @ stock, the x2 wins almost every time. x2 manny @ max OC vs. PD @ max OC(let's say 4.0GHz) the PD is gonna kick some arse. lol.

if u grabbed a cheap 956p or p35 board and a set of ballistix(which are pretty cheap), could find a great cooler on t3h ch3ap, and OC to 4.0GHz or >, add in you 8800GTS 512 U'd have a kick ass last gen Intel rig. It'd probably rival(and beat) many lower end c2d rigs. It'd also set you on a nice upgrade path to a q6600 or something of the like.

now! Let's say you could grab a board for, oh... $75, RAM for $60, and $45 for the cooler. that's $180. Is it worth it though?

now. Flat out selling your opty rig, grabbing the above stuff + a q6600 would yield an absolutely massive performance boost over your current set-up.

as far as a complementing card for the PD rig if u plan on keeping it as a back up try and go for a x19** 512 card or a 79** 512 card, IMHO anyway

I have a PD 925 (3.0 GHz) on a GA 965P S3 with 2 gigs of OCZ DDRII 800 sitting on the floor in my room......

Have a C2D E4300 @ 2.4 on a 965 board with 2 gig of ram in it, my girl prefers the C2D, says its faster..... so for web surfing and online shopping, the C2D wins LOL....

But seriously, the PD 925 is a small space heater, idles at 40c with a lapped MaxOrb 120 on it and the side off... couldnt imagine OCing it, however i had it post at 4.0, just didnt test much cause i wana sell it not fry it....
