    Hello people, I was wondering if anyone is able to give suggestions in determining which processor is the better one. Okay, I have a earlier socket 775 MB from Gigabyte(GA-8I945P-G) that i was going to start building. It supports the two processors mentioned above but i'm not sure which to get. Should i "go with the flow":D and follow the same track everyone else went and go dual, or be like a "die hard" and sit this 800 FSB P4 w/ HT and stick it out ?:rockout: The reason is because right now my system is basically the old 478 P4 with 800FSB, DDR400, AGP, So i'm familiar with it. Any suggestions, maybe just get a MB/CPU combo or something already? I just want to know if all that dual stuff is all worth it. I'm basically just a gamer, and i play online(FSP). Just an average Joe like everyone else who may have several graphic intensive games, and no multi-threaded applications. I just want to know if i can survive several more years if say get the P4-670, because it's a juicy 3.8Ghz, and 2MB of L2. I'm open to opinions or any suggestions, and thanks by the way for their time. :)

    ive got a sckt 478 3ghz ht pentium and i can run all my games on the highest. i d stick it out because the way i see it is a high end single core or a low end dual. games like splinter cell double agent and battle field 2142 run perfectly.

    I had the Pentium d 3.2 clocked at 3.7Ghz and really flew and you have dual core, Thats the way to go i would say. Love it so much upgraded to quad core.

    Pentium D. Dual core rocks single core. But if you have the money core 2 is SOOO much faster.

    mobo doesnt support C2D's ;)


    @ linktriscuit, what parts are you going to use in that mobo cuz it needs DDR2 667/533/400 DIMM and a PCI Express x 16 card ?

    I just meant if he had the money for the new mobo and cpu. And Dom's question is a good one.

    lol thats why I asked that cuz if he doesnt have all that its going to cost more then just a mobo and cpu

    but if he has money to upgrade all together then thats the way to go :D
