I can get a used Pentium D 945 around $50 to upgrade my system, or I could build a new rig which would cost my pocket to bleed...

Is it worth to get the Pentium D 945 for $50?? or build a new??

805 -> 945 = 74Mhz gain
805 -> E6300 = 1.06Ghz gain*

Performance-wise the Core architecture processes aprox twice as fast as the Pentiums

my PD925 oc to 4ghz fsb 267=1070 beat a hell out of c2d6600 2.4ghz fsb 266mhz=1066mhz

You're comparing an Overclocked PD to a Stock C2D. That E6600 oc'd would tear through two PD's without thinking. Sorry.

You did kind of shoot yourself in the foot if what he says is true. I don't see a point in upgrading from a Pentium D 805 to anything other than a C2D. Might as well spend some more on better cooling and get some higher clocks out of the 805 if you want to have a pentium D

The 805 is easily the most overclockable Pentium D available. I really don't see a 945 as any kind of upgrade, myself. I honestly can't see where you would even get any performance gains by making that swap.

Get an E4300 or E6320, a decent 965P based mobo, and 2GB of PC2-6400 and you can make your upgrade for a very reasonable amount of money, and have EXCELLENT performance gains to show for the $$$ spent.
