I'm getting set build my new rig but i'm unsure what processor choose.

I'm torn between purchasing a pentium D 805 n overclocking the mother or spending a little more n gettin a core duo E6600.

Advice kindly invited.

WTF! Anti-Hyper Threading All the Way!!! Get a AM2 and when AMD flicks the Anti-Conroeversial Terratomorizer on, a once lowly FX CPU will warp time and space completing processes even before time began...

hey, hey...take it easy, no RHT crap posted here:) 
My advice is, buy E6600 and overclock it :)

Wow, didn't know FX's could warp space time.......

Seriously, I still wouldn't call them lowly, far better than what I have.

Go with Conroe. Don't try to do that overclocking thing with the 805, you'll probably just end up with a toaster.

Edit: Just noticed that you said Core Duo, not Core 2 Duo. That is a different matter. Still, I would have to say Core Duo if you are concerned with just performance, but they are a little pricey.

So your saying that with an fx-64 and reverse hyper threading i can warp time and space and go to any point in time in this universe when i want and i can instantly teleport myself to anywhere? And how much power will i need 1.21 jigawatts?

1.21 Jiga watts is absolutely fine for an FX-64. 1.8 Jigawatts is the well known maximum, go above that and you'll end up with something in-between a black hole and piles.

Ok then if i can generate a blackhole how will i know if it will let me travel through time or space?

Toasters are cool. You like floppy bread for breakfast?

Hey can i rig a toaster to create minature black holes?

The E6600 will cost more than 3 times as much as the PD 805 but it is one hell of a processor!

If it was made in Taiwan, then yes it can do anything. Hell, it might even give your bread a burnt Virgin Mary.

If you're looking at performance, the Pentium D 805 is a laughable chip any way you look at it. A 533 MHz FSB and a 2.66GHz clock speed, as well as all of the infamous disadvantages of the NetBurst arcitecture...

...It's only really worth noting because of the rediculously low price, and that it's about as overclockable as any other NetBurst on the market today.

Of course, note that the Core Duo (pre-Conroe, I see) will be vastly more powerful, but note that it will ALSO be significantly more expensive. However, also considering that it will also run cooler (and quieter) as well as using less power, (yielding better stability without requiring an expensive new power supply) Make the Core Duo well worth the extra cash, at least in my book.
