What do you mean they oc a "bit" more, if you call up to 6.0ghz on liquid nitrogen cooling, and 5.5ghz on water cooling a "bit"more then either you didnt see what people on XS forums have got them too, or your insane.

well the intel pentium D will not run like a 2.66 pentium 4... it will be faster, by a lot. you see, you can set the affinity in xp so that all of the other processes go to one core, and the game goes to another core.

just seomthing to consider
obviously that is true. i meant in standard use without setting core affinity and in games performance without the dual core patches (which are crap at the moment anyway).

like i said earlier

a 2.66ghz pentium D probably won't be that good for gaming until there is better SMP support in games. because at the moment it will basically run like a 2.66ghz p4 so not exactly brilliant
