Need suggestions for an Intel processor and video card - Page 2

post #11 of 29
the Asus card is a great mid level card but there is no way that cpu/ram set up will allow it's true potential to shine.

My mobo supports PCIe x16 and has the correct socket (LGA 775). I have 3 gigs of RAM and iirc my PSU is 450w. I'm good to go?

And what's virtualization?

Thanks for the help guys.

Research your motherboard and see what the max FSB(Frontsidebus) and wattage for the cpu. If the board can run a P-D or C2D you would still need to find out what the max wattage it will produce for the CPU. Some P-4,P-D and Dual Core boards had a lower wattage than some of the higher end C2Ds.
Max 45 watt will not run a 65 watt cpu or a 95 watt etc.

Also check you home site for BIOS flash as well a CPU support so we can help you select a good CPU for your board.

Having the correct socket means it will fit, but not that it will necessarily work, it needs to have a chipset with the architecture you want. LGA775 saw Netburst, Core, and Penryn, and only some of the motherboards are compatible with all of them, there are others (particularly in prebuilt computers or cheap custom-built ones) that only support Netburst or Netburst and Core.

3GB is going to be balanced enough for your system, I'd leave it.

With a PSU power matters little, what does is rated current and quality. I'm not familiar with the GTX460 and its power-hunger, but if it's a cheaper brand or has a weak 12V rail I'd be wary of running a GTX460. Again this is just a pointer, you'll have to research it to get a more detailed answer.

Virtualisation is the capability to run two operating systems at once in the form of a virtual machine. Few people ever use the feature so Intel removes it to cut costs on their budget units.

Under processor support for my mobo it says 1066/800/533 MHz system bus. I'm assuming that means it supports the E6500's 1066 FSB. I couldn't find what wattage the mobo supports but the cpu that came with it (E4300) uses the same amount of watts so I'm assuming that means it's ok.

And not sure what you meant by the last sentence

EDIT: Actually guys I might pick up a new mobo unless there's another card that you guys can think of.. my mobo supports x16 pcie not x16 pcie 2.0

The motherboard sites usually have down loads and updates for you board. In general...the Asus Commando was built before the C2D-Quads came out but it will support them with the bios flash update. It runs just about any 775 chip out there with the memory clocking to match. I have taken it up to 1667+ fsb on a CD2 E6750 with the listed memory installed but never pushed it. I have also ran it with a Celly running 500 fsb with the same memory.

My second rig is a Compaq(Don't bash my folding rig) That I took the Celly out of and installed a P-D940(Which they said would not run) and she has folded a many a Wu for OCN.

Sometimes it works when you least expect it to then again it may give you a fit.

Tryagainpiss said that the core2duo and pentium cores have the penryn architecture.. and I have an E4300 and I'm going to get that E6500 so I guess that will be fine?

Well Core architecture includes the 65nm C2Ds and related processors, such as Pentium Dual-Cores and C2Qs. Many people know it as the Conroe architecture. Wolfdales like the E6500 are the successors to Allendales, not the same thing. Wolfdales are Penryn and Allendales are Core. You'd have to get info from Dell directly proving that your motherboard supports Penryn, but I think it would be smarter to go Kentsfield. You wouldn't have to worry about cross-architecture compatibility although you'd still need to make sure that the FSB and power requirements are met.

500FSB CPU and 500mghz memory just to be safe. I have no idea wattage wise what to tell you on the CPU. Also forget the BIOS flash(No go on locked out BIOS).

With all your issues of compatibility. I suggest buying a new motherboard too.

Pentium Dual-Core E5500 $70 + free shipping
Gigabyte GTS 450 OC $110 + free shipping + $20 rebate
Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L $50 + 1$ shipping

But I'd still give your current mobo a chance.
