Joefriday..... what are you talking about? I didn't use the edit button and remove my childish remarks!

To the forums, sorry, stooped to a low level, will refrain from it in the future. I had lowbrowitis. It's been cured since.

That's some pretty lowbrow humor there weskurtz. I thought you were better than that. :( 

To the OP: The D 920 actually performs a little bit worse than the e2140 on average. You definitely don't want to pay more for less performance. Stick with the Pentium E2140.

Never ever ever in your entire life pick the the Pentium D. The Pentium Dual-core, is okay but not the Pentium D series. The Pentium D is really out-dated, highly inefficient, produces a lot of heat, and is overly expensive for the money you pay for it. Stick to the E2140. If you want to overclock, the E2160 would be a better choice for like 20USD more.

I know, I slip up every now and then and say something stupid. :pfff:  (couldn't find the embarrassed smiley)......

Just to give you a back ground on the Pentium D-eez nutz..... When I was in the military (there is a key to the entire thing) a good friend of mine bought an 820 thinking it would be a good performer. He, at that time, was an Intel fanboy. I had a X2 3800 which pretty much blew his 820 away in every task. So, when we would start to discuss his Pentium D I would chime in with the afore mentioned phrase.

When I posted it I know I was being childish, but despite my better judgment I posted it.

To add something useful to this thread. Stay away from the Pentium D's and all of netburst. If you cannot afford Core 2 and the Pentium D is less expensive(don't know the pricing at this time) go with AMD. If the price is close, and you can afford it, go with any of the Core 2 cpu's. You will be much better off and will not regret it.

Old technology is not worth actual money IMO. Sometimes not even for free.
