Im seing a lot of negativity about pentium d. Is this perception corect. is the current line of pentium d's a heap of junk? i was thinking my new pc would be fast as hell with an 820 but im having second thoughts.
If you really want dual-core, go with the Athlon X2's. They're worth every penny. At least AMD didn't just slap 2 crap processors together...they actually designed the Athlon 64's to be dual-core enabled in the future, so they're alot better.
well i want a very fast video editing machine. i thought amds x2 sounded better but i am intimidated by the price. their cheapest dual core is twice the price of intels cheapest dual core.
i am willing to fork out if necesary, after all i want a hard-core power house. i just dont know wether its worth it. my maximum expenditure is $3000 ozzie. - keeping in mind that most people here are US, i will remind you that our dollar buys a bit less in the way of hardware (around 75% of what you can get for the same price).
Hmm i don't like dual core processors ...
I mean you can run programs with the same performance as in the dual core processors ...
But the time sharing rating would be alot higher than the single ones though
