Lol ya.. I just went from a Pentium D to a C2D... that review is completely wrong, somebody has no clue what their talking about.

Somebody probably put that there to help newegg clear out their stock of Pentium D's because they are not selling, lol people who have no idea about computers will see that and think its true, then buy it because they think their saving money.

just forgot the pentium d as it consumes much more power than modern chips and that to at less speed so stay away from it and choose a new c2d or x2 based processor
