I want to play Assassin's Creed, its minimum is
Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
RAM: 2 GB
Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0 compliant sound card
HDD Space: 12GB
DirectX Version: DirectX 10.


I have a
CPU: Intel Pentium E2200 Allendale 2.2GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
RAM: G.SKILL 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G LGA 775 Intel P31 ATX Intel
Video Card: EVGA GeForce 8800 GS 384MB
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s

I still have not built the machine, its on its way now, so I cant use system requirement lab, it seems like I am over everything, but the processor is confusing me, can i play it with this processor?

E2200/E2180/E2160 OCed to 3.2Ghz is equal to a E8300(stock).

Ok, here are benchmarks for a E2180 @3.2:







Go with the E2200/E2180

yes the Pentium D 2.6 is SLOWER then the E2200 @ 2.2

thanks for the answers. I am glad I will be able to play the game.

The E2200 will destroy any Pentium D in all benchmarks, You could easily overclock the E2200 to 3Ghz which will give you nearly the same speed as an E8200, CPU performance is not the biggest factor in Assassins creed, Ram and GPU are.

cheers

Thanks, these are a lot better answers then yahoo answers, some people just dont know what they are talking about.

Wrong. The D965 extreme edition at 3.73ghz or whatever it was at would destroy an E2200 very easily.

Unless you increased the E2200 to a nice cool 3.0Ghz or so, then it would easily lose.
The E2200 will normally clock well past 3.0Ghz, even on stock cooling.

I don't believe that's true... wouldn't the E2200 be equivalent to over a 4Ghz Pentium D? I know the extreme edition also had hyper threading, but I don't think that would make it immensely better.

So what were they saying? I could use a good laugh...

Yeah, did they use a numbering theory then?

The Pentium D was a horribly inefficient implementation of two cores on one CPU. While I think a 3.7GHz PD could theoretically have a greater processing power than an E2200@2.2Ghz, I think the efficiency of the Core microarchitecture would have a slight edge. Add to that the E2200 can overclock very easily to 3.2Ghz+ and it's a no-contest victory for the E2200.

To the OP:
2.2Ghz Core DC > 2.6Ghz Netburst DC

lol, yeah its that one. I cant believe two people just gave me the requirements, as if I dont know what they were.

All these claims are not always true

i have
Pentium D 3.0 GHz
it can easily beat a cor 2 duo E4500 overclocked to 2.73 ghz

Screenshots or it didnt happen.

Infact I would gladly pit my Opty165@2.9 against your PentiumD@3.0 and wipe the floor with you.

@piku: Be careful of what you say with out proof. It is a dangerous thing to do on the Forums.

I personally helped to create both of those chips.

You are full of crap.

Yeah the Opty165@2.9 would make it it's b*tch. Man those were awesome processors for the price. Awesome overclocking ability, server-grade reliability, and cheaper than the +3800 X2 of the day.

you could always upgrade to a e7200 or 7300, they seem to be price / performance kings for lower cost cpu's


i got banned from yahoo answers and i can't even remember why. people were flagging my posts as against tos for just giving good answers to peoples questions.. i even still get emails saying "your answer chosen as best answer!'' even though my acct has been banned for months.

e2200 is good for game in normal setting
