The guy's selling a 3.4GHz Gallatin for only a hunnerd Typically, those go for $200, so it's quite a nice deal for those who need the absolute best.
It's not the 3.2GHz variant, but...

...a socket 478 Pentium 4 EE for $60. The multiplier is unlocked, so who's going to care for the stock 200MHz?

i have an old P4 that a friend of mine built for me dont know the model number but i know it was a socket 478 still running strong to this very day. i had given to my niece so she can browse the web. i know its running with XP 32bit service pack 3, but i will be getting the rest of the specs.

i also have a dell E310 with a P4 that i gave to my parents so they can browse the web, still running and is running with windows 7 .

I had built my brother a budget build E3400 on a gigabyte G41M-combo to do what ever he wants to do with.

I also have a Pentium D 920 that is now running as my HTPC.

And im about to build another E3400 and try to OC the **** out of it since i got it for free

i will get the model numbers and specs for all five that is running in this house of mine

I am a sad person and buy old pentiums for the sake of it.

Currently have:

Intel Pentium 4 630 @ 3.0GHz
Intel Pentium 4 631 @ 3.1GHz
Intel Pentium 4 660 @ 3.6GHz (I find it sad that these were $430 when new, now i got it for 10 bucks)
Intel Pentium E2200 @ 2.2GHz

And i still want more, looking to get the higher performing chips unlike what i have currently. If only people would give them away to me.

I'm in got my old Pentium D 805 still running!
post #696 of 761
Hi There,

I just Acquired a Pentium 4 D 940 . Maybe You all can help me out with something

Are these CPU's really as bad as I am Reading about in reviews etc ? If I had it overclocked to say 4.2-4.3Ghz and put it with a Decent Dx11 Video Card . Played at 1024 X 768 (Only) /w 4AA & 8 AF . Do you think this card would still have problems playing a CPU Demanding/Intensive game (Such as Crysis , BF2/3 etc )

I Read things like the AMD Athlon X2 4400+ /w only 512k L2 Cache beating up this Processor in such games . and the 4400+ is only 2.2ghz , is this TRUE ?

I know Cache , FSB Speed , and Instruction Sets are the most Important things these days (Compared to Raw MHZ Power)
But you would think a Duel Core 4.25Ghz CPU (From any Generation) Would be able to Handel any game without choking ..

I Love Intel Stuff.. I just got 2 Intel Servers too (1 of them /w 2X 1400 (s) CPU's , and 1 of them /w 2 X 1266Mhz (S) CPU's) Haven't had much time to play with them yet but im sure they will still be useful

Disappointing to keep reading bad thing after bad thing

For the most part, everything you are hearing is right. The Pentium D is two Pentium 4s. It's a dual core Pentium 4. While a lot of the negativity makes it seem like there's nothing right about it, it was still a pretty unfavorable CPU. It ran warm, drew a lot of power, and was slower than the competing Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2, and it's even slower today. It was clocked high because it had to be to compensate for it's low IPC. That is, it may be at 4.3 GHz, but a 4.3GHz Pentium D is no 4.3GHz modern CPU, and the cache and FSB isn't why. Believe it or not, the Pentium 4 had a lower IPC than the Pentium III before it! (at least this was true for the early Pentium 4s, latter ones with higher FSB/cache might have overcome it) The architecture/design is why it's slower than modern CPUs, not instruction sets and whatnot. Plain and simply, the Pentium 4/D is just too poor and old to handle modern intensive stuff well even if you clock it to 8GHz.

I would not pair it with a modern Direct X 11 GPU that is respectably fast. It will bottleneck it beyond belief. It'd bottleneck a GeForce 8800 series GPU for that matter. The higher end Radeon X19xx or higher end GeForce 7 series is about the most I'd pair with it and not expect it to bottleneck to a high degree. I had a GeForce 6800 GS paired with my Pentium 4 2.8GHz w/Hyper-threading, and they felt roughly evenly matched (maybe the CPU being a slight bottleneck even).

Will have 4 Socket 478 systems up and running shortly for impromptu CS 1.6, Quake III and such lan sessions. Details on the rigs as I get them up and running.
