Unless the price is too tempting to ignore, I'll go with a northwood smile.gif
Just finished my job, got some bling. Will be ordering a CPU tomorrow. If any of you guys have a 3,4ghz socket 478 northwood/a cheap prescott/a VERY cheap gallatin you'd like to sell, now's your chance wink.gif

I noticed that, that's why I left that comment. I would really prefer a northwood or a gallatin (lol), though, unless your price managed to convince me otherwise smile.gif
Oh right, have you tried overclocking it? If so, how far did you manage to go?



EDIT: Scratch that, when I think about it, prescotts are power-hungry. Even if I got one for free right now, a northwood would be cheaper in the long run. In short, screw it.

HOWEVER!

I AM willing to get a prescott in the name of science.

tpi2007, you said you bought a 3,4 northwood, correct? I am willing to buy a prescott if we can somehow arrange a benchmark, finally getting solid evidence regarding the performance of these two CPUs in today's applications.
I'm not that well-read on such tests, but I'm guessing the CPUs should be examined in the exact same conditions, right? Unless there's some software that provides accurate CPU performance results regardless of other components, which I doubt. That would mean that we, at some point, would need to temporarily exchange CPUs in order to get accurate results. If you're up to the challenge, so am I. Of course, exchanging stuff with complete strangers isn't my favourite pastime either, so I'll perfectly understand if you won't want to do this (heck, I don't want a prescott, so go ahead and refuse! biggrin.gif )

That is a good idea, however, it might not be necessary for us to exchange CPU's (which might actually not make much financial sense if we live too far apart).

I checked out your motherboard, and it's got exactly the same chipset as mine. Both are an 848p, and have the same charactericstics. The only difference is yours is an AsRock and mine is an MSI.

And funnily enough, I am just about to replace the Seagate 120GB Sata that I currently have in it, with a WD Caviar Blue 320GB Sata, so even from that standpoint we are more or less the same.

Then we only have to make sure we test with the same amount of RAM, at the same timings, and we should have a pretty good comparison.

The only thing separating the benchmarks would be gaming performance, because we have different GPU's. I'm trying to buy something more powerful than the 7600GS I currently have, but still haven't found one for the right price/performance.


EDIT: LOL, I just saw your edited post, yes, I suppose buying a Prescott would only make you feel good about it in the winter LOLOL

But hey, given we have comparable systems, we can make a race to see who can get the most out of it. Go buy your Northwood! biggrin.gif

I'm trying to get Crysis to play at 1024x768 on medium settings (probably with low Physics and something else like shadows, that won't affect too much the visuals, but will improve performance)

Then that's that. I'll place the order after a trip to the bank tomorrow. Can't wait to overclock the hell out of it~ ^^ Though again, despite awesome temps, I'm guessing the voltage will be holding me back, consarnit. Ah well, I'll just have to wait & see.

Oh, and regarding your GPU... I guess an HD3650 AGP should deliver the proper amount of bang without being seriously held back by other hardware parts like an HD4670 AGP would. I'm definitely going to get a HD3650 if I see one with a decent price tag.


EDIT: on an unrelated note; I was just rummaging through my "Ye Olde Treasure Chest of PC Parts & Stuff" and I found an instruction manual/warranty for my old celeron (which I gave away to my cousin). Ahhh, sweet, sweet nostalgia. No, wait. That's a different emotion. What I experienced was...
...
Right, t'was anger... RAAAAAGEEEEE!!! biggrin.gif Damn, I hate that CPU. It is a horrible HORRIBLE abomination.
Anyway, and if that weren't enough, I even found an Intel Inside Celeron logo sticker
thm_Intel_Celeron.jpg
on the back of the manual. Of course, I had to stick it somewhere, as I'm a sucker for stickers biggrin.gif It will now always remind me of my past misery whenever I see it.

I've been studying that precise GPU matter yesterday and arrived at the conclusion that that card is not very good.

The HD3650 only catches the HD2600XT when the core is overclocked from the stock 725-750Mhz to 900Mhz, and even then the HD2600XT wins in games like Crysis at 1024x768 and 1280x1024 (only loses at 800x600).

The HD3650 wins in the HQV video quality tests with a 90 points score against 75 for the HD2600XT, but that difference shouldn't make much of a difference.

That leaves 4 cards to consider:

- X1950 Pro (preferrably the 512MB GDDR3 version)
- HD2600XT (preferrably the 512MB GDDR4 version)
- HD3850 (preferrably the 512MB GDDR3 version)
- HD4650 512MB DDR2

There is also the HD4670, but that is way too expensive.

The HD4650 is slower than the HD3850, but has the ability to accelerate HD flash video content (although I'm not 100% sure the AGP hotfix drivers support this feature, though they should).

If you consider gaming, the HD3850 seems like the best option; it even has a 256-bit bus. The X1950 Pro and the HD2600XT can hold up to the HD3850 for the most part (CPU bottleneck), but fall in higher resolutions.


This is an interesting read: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ati-agp-3850-agp,1939.html

They tested the HD3850 AGP + X1950Pro + HD2600XT (and the 6600GT too - my 7600GS has the same - horrible - performance) in a single core Athlon 64 3400+, which should be a good indicator of performance for the 3.4 Northwood.

The Athlon might be a bit faster, but then again, they had to put up a test system than was comprised of many different RAM sticks, but ran at the lower speed one, which was 333Mhz. And then they used Windows Vista. Oh, and a 120GB HDD.

Given we will be using 400Mhz DDR, Windows XP and faster HDD's, that should give us if not a lead, at least make us even with the Athlon.

Right, t'was anger... RAAAAAGEEEEE!!! biggrin.gif Damn, I hate that CPU. It is a horrible HORRIBLE abomination.
Anyway, and if that weren't enough, I even found an Intel Inside Celeron logo sticker

on the back of the manual. Of course, I had to stick it somewhere, as I'm a sucker for stickers biggrin.gif It will now always remind me of my past misery whenever I see it.
*facepalms*

A Netburst Celeron ? Oh yeah, those were very limited because of the small amount of L2 cache. 128kb, right ?

You can always give the manual and sticker to your cousin. He already has the processor hehehe..
