Great bang for the buck if you already have an lga775 board. But it seems AMD is back as the king of the bang for buck segment with its newest dual cores and tripple cores m 0 l Related resources Differentiate between dual core and core2 duo - Forum difference between core2 duo and i3 - Forum Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.6Ghz OR Intel® Core™2 Duo E4600 2.4Ghz - Forum Diff between i3 & core2duo - Forum What is the difference between an intel duo core2 and an intel i13 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Celeron D's were single core Prescott celerons, I know the name is misleading but Intel wanted it to mean "desktop" I think they did it to confuse consumers into thinking they got a dual core, seeing as their Pentium D chips were dual core. m 0 l hunter315 a c 209 à CPUs February 11, 2010 8:22:23 PM Just check, you are indeed right, thanks protokiller, they had apparently confused me with it too m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
