Ask ! Get the answer shubham1401 a b à CPUs April 8, 2010 9:14:58 AM Try Overclocking your E6750. That might speed up the process. If you still feel its slow then get a Q6600(As Xaira said, you can get a used one too). Pentium 4 will be even slower than your current E6750. robdouglas April 8, 2010 9:44:02 AM Thanks there are some Q6600s available on that well known Auction Site I am not sure about Overclocking, Best leave that to the experts Regards Rob shubham1401 a b à CPUs April 8, 2010 10:20:12 AM Well you can try overclocking.That's not as difficult as you think. If interested then check out the overclocking guide(Stickied on the top) in OC section. rodney_ws April 8, 2010 5:41:57 PM A Pentium 4 540 is a single core CPU and would be a major downgrade from what you have now. flyinfinni a b à CPUs April 8, 2010 6:18:57 PM If you can, try the Q6600 if you can get one- would be a solid upgrade if you can get a reasonable price. robdouglas April 8, 2010 10:15:23 PM Quite a few on Ebay around £75-£120 Does that sound about right ? robdouglas April 8, 2010 10:19:43 PM rodney_ws said:A Pentium 4 540 is a single core CPU and would be a major downgrade from what you have now. Thanks very much for that, i should have realised that Pentiums are an older CPU, there seem to be a few Q6600s about so i will go for one of those,anything i need to look out for ? Regards Rob flyinfinni a b à CPUs April 8, 2010 10:24:47 PM That should do ya- As long as you know how to use Ebay and not get ripped off, you should be fine:-) shubham1401 a b à CPUs April 9, 2010 8:18:54 AM Yes. Go for the Q6600. All the best! robdouglas April 28, 2010 9:41:24 PM shubham1401 said:Yes. Go for the Q6600. All the best! Ok so i now have a working Q6600 (so im told) is it just a case of swapping it for my core 2 duo or do i need to alter the bios, or back up all my files etc Rob flyinfinni a b à CPUs April 29, 2010 2:20:58 AM Rob- You may need to do a BIOS update, but thats pretty simple- just go to the mobo manufacturers website and download the latest BIOS for your board, flash it, and then drop in that Q6600.
