Typical fan boy response:
No Pentiums and 64's go in same table becuase they have a same amount of L2 cache...unlike the C2D witch has 4MB its just not fair so they get there own table becuase its just not fair and its the reason why the a64 get there [fannies] kicked.
problem with that of course being that if you look at the 9XX series of pentium D's you may notice something funny about the amount of cache they have.......4mb
pentium D's and pentium 4's while being heinously innefecient are still quite competitive with athlon 64's and it is entirely fair that Athlon 64's and Pentium 4's be placed in the same table given that Pentium 4's did actually hold the records. Core 2 is in a league of its own
Dude sell your telescope/cpu/mobo/ram and you should have enough.
don't think i can part with my precious pc though. especially given i'll have to be with out it for some period of time
i'll find a way. i'm trying to sell my telescope now and if all goes well i'll be two thirds of the way to an E6300
