Intel Pentium 4 541 3.2Ghz 800Mhz 1MB LGA775
Intel Pentium D 820 2.8GHz LGA775 800MHz FSB EM64T w/ 2x1MB
Now before you laugh.. im on a budget. and ive neve rbeen into Intels. Im an AMD freak. but heres the scoop. I accedentally when i was tired, orderd the wrogn socket mobo for my old P4 2.4 forgot the socket fo rthat.. but i ended up buying a LGA755 socket mobo...
Gigabyte 865G GA-81865GME-775
Im lazy and dont want to return it and get restockign fees and such charged blah blah... so im keeping the mobo.. and i need a cpu for it.
Heres what im goignt obe usign it for: Photoshop, Gaming (laugh if you must,i am.), Possible Video editing, Music Editing (Fruityloops, Adobe Audtion), Webdesign (Dreamweaver, Flash etc.), and basically an all around computer setup. Heres my big question, I knwo the Prescotts give alot of heat, its all goign in a Aspire X-QPACK Case. do you think thats going to work out with the basic Heatsink? now onto bigger questions, i do alot of multi tasking, but i also want performance. I reafd that Pentium D's are good for that. but i jsut dotn knwo which way to go from here (yes i knwo i shoudl go AMD, But theres the money issue) i only have about $110 to spare, as i jsut quit my job becaus eof my back. now anythign is better than what im on now (athough its beeter than what i learned on) a Intel Pentium II 300Mhz with XP) see my delima? but yes. i need anyswers.. maybe even insight if theres any Intel Freaks out there willign to help me out. One of these days i plan to be active agian here.. its jus tso hard when i dotn knwo whats goign on anymore.. i rememebr my AMD 2000+ oh yes.. them were the days for me :-) Thanks in Advance! and if you have a myspace and want to add me feel free to.. http://www.myspace.com/geister - Geister
