LINKKKKKK

i have a p4 socket 775 or whatever, and it is 3.0 ghz and 1024k l2 and a 16 sumthin l1

This here will have a bigger cache and it is the same speed.. so will dual core be better than what i have? and is it worth the money?

ya your chipset is to old on you MOBO to use the new processor... u NEED to buy a new one, then u can use all the other parts from the hp and oc the cpu....

PS: with a new mobo you wont have to worry about burning your hand on any heatsinks....LOL

ok if you want this new cpu, you will need a new mobo, it will come with sata ports, but u cant just plug the hard drives in and go... you will have to reformat, and your PSU is much too weak... you will need atleast 450 watt, preferably over 500watt... and for much better performance you will also want another 512 of ram, oh and to recover the system you will just have to make a backup of the registry to recover if something goes bad...

The reason I suggest him waiting is because yes, a new Pressler would be an upgrade, but it doesn't warrant the money he'd be spending to get it. I stand by my recommendation to either wait for the new Intel core this Summer or switch over to AMD dual core.

hey hey hey... now dont be shunnin down on us intel boys... we never did anything to you guys but loose in all the benchmarks...LOL im j/k you have a good point with that.... but the intel will do just perfect for the multitasking he plans to do...

Spending a ton of dough for another core that won't be used a lot of the time doesn't make sense. For the single core applications, he's actually dropping a little cpu speed. It just doesn't seem economical. I'd look for a gpu upgrade and maybe snatch a psu to help lower the cost when the real upgrade comes. It's his money, but I don't think he's getting enough performance upgrade for his dollar. The single core apps are gaining what......a drop from 3 ghz to 2.8 ghz? Nah, I'd pass.

ya i know you werent... i was just playin around... but i personally think the dual cores will become very handy in a year or so... so upgrading his cpu to a dual core will be benneficial in the future more than now... but as you said its his money, and if he has his eyes set on a certain cpu, then hes gonna get it.
