I have a Pentium D 830 right now in my rig. I'm wanting to do an upgrade on this thing and think the best move at the moment is my proccessor. I have a 7800GTX video card, Good ram I forget what kind it is hehe... I think it was Corsair XMS. I'd have to pop them out and check, stock speed is 667 if I recall correctly (I'm a bit out the loop since my build about a year ago <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> ). <br />
<br />
Anyway, from what I think the weakest link is my CPU. I got a few hundred bucks I can throw down on a new CPU. What would you reccomend? PC is about ready to get OC'd with the gear I have right now. I never really messed with it though because I read alot about the 800 series running super hot, so I didnt chance it. Plus this PC does rip as it sits right now <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> , but could be faster.<br />
<br />
Give me some ideas. Thanks guys.<br />
<br />
EDIT: This proccessor looks like it might be a nice upgrade: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819116247" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116247</a>

intel core 2 duo e6600 its 315 at newegg but it is the best performance/value for the money dont pay attention the ghz the process is ultra fast and does more with less, i waisted my money on a pentium d 950 is it still dosent compare to even the 6400, and it dosent oc well but that also ties in with my mobo not being a good ocer for intel, but i am saving/paying off my credit cards untill i can afford a 6600, BUT rumor has it quad cores are coming out soon so wait for those and the core 2 duo's should drop in price

WIth your board any of the Pentium D 9XX chips should work great for you, Id recomend the 945 3.4 dual core. Anyways just make sure your bios is updated so it can support the 9XX chips.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
