Do some research please, you are not ready for this ass wooping. Please grow up we can discuss this via PM i posted a viable upgrade plan and if sold right he will be able to afford the SB system with his current parts.
first of all sit your ass down scruby
second of all uh... no I don't know where you are getting your benchmarks but everything I have seen puts the sb-sloweron below the c2q
it barely edges out the pathetically slow AMD x2 and compared to the core i3 its a joke and not even worth the shelf space
the point is if hes gonna spend the money do it once and do it right =/
just because you can't afford decent hardware doesn't mean you should recommend junk to everybody else sheesh
