i asked so many people and i cant get a straight answer! i bought a new desktop computer and ive never heard of this before but its an Intel Pentium duo 2.6ghz. Does this mean its duel core? some people told me its the Core duo for desktops some people told me its the Pentium D which supposidly sucks . Can anyone give me a straight answer please because im really confused with it all now
I'm guessing this wasn't a big ticket item (<$1000)
If that is true, it probably is an 805.
The 805 is not a great chip, because it is very much bandwidth starved. They do OC well, so it is possible to partially correct the poor memory problem.
Check in the bios, if the multiplier is 20, you have an 805.
i got the system for around 2,300 canadian but it came with a 19" LCD monitor, 1 gig DDR2 ram and Intel hyper-threading mainboard with a PCI Express slot, a DVD+/-RW at 16X, 250 gig samsung/western Digital hard drive. and then the Intel Pentium Duo 2.6ghz. Thanks for all the feedback guys. I'm 100% sure its a Pentium D 805. Ive read a lot of reviews on it and people seem to really like it if its overclocked. But i dont really have a clue how to even do that.
