Either get the 805D, 915D, or splurge and get the E6300.

805D: Hottest, slowest, cheapest. Expect 3.7+ on *good* air cooling. Not really any reason you should consider this one unless you are on a super budget.
915D: Cooler than the 805D and clocks even better. More expensive, but cheaper than the 945D. Expect 4.4+ on air.

The 915 should clock as well as the 945, since they're both Preslers.

E6300: It would rape the Pentium Ds in everything, except cost.

those D945's are missing VT (virtualization technology). what does that mean for normal users? would it be better getting the 915 which has VT :?:
in regards to which one to get, id go with the 6300. but depends on what your budget permits. IMO

as far as i know, 915 does not have VT. VT is used for servers only. it enables your processor to have a vertual multi platform feature.

Yea, the E6300 costs more, but it's worth it.

That will be a very good gaming machine....Not top-notch, but very nice, but i don't think you'll make the $800 budget. The only other option is to get everything except the E6300, and throw in a budget chip...such as the 805D, 915, or even an el cheapo Celeron. Just to tide you over until you can get the Allendale/Conroe CPU that you want. Then you can flog the temperary chip to help cover your loses. GL :)

would everything minus the e6300 and add the 915 be a good gamin rig?
August 17, 2006 11:43:36 PM

If you overclocked the 915, yes.
