Would I see a performance decrease with this CPU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i'v been planning on doing some upgrades soon and was planning on getting another 6800gs for sli and another 1gb gskill memory stick, but the one thing that i'll basicly be down grading is the processor......now this is my question, if i get the new pentium d 805 along with all the other upgrades i said, will i see a performnce decrease at all? mostly in games


the reason for my down grade of the cpu is that i'm on a tight budget for upgrades, and i kind order the asus p5nd2 sli board to go with my 820........so yea......no dual core

For gaming... at least for now you won't see any loss in performance from switching from a dual core to a single core because no games utilize the dual core as of yet. In retrospect you should see a nice increase in performance while gaming from your SLI setup and extra ram. I think the only place you'll see negligable decreased performance is when multitasking but I bet it won't even be noticable.
