  1. HI ZIPZOOM, THANKS FOR THE REPLY.

    ITS A P4 SINGLE CORE, OVERCLOCKABLE TO 3.7 BUT RUNS SILLY HOT. I KNOW THE E2180 IS A BUDGET CPU BUT THE MOTHERBOARD IM GETTING WITH IT CAN SUPPORT THE QUADS AND CORE 2 EXTREME SO I WILL BE UPGRADING IN A FEW MONTHS.

    WHICH CPU WOULD YOU RECOMMEND ON A BUDGET?

  7. just noticed it says cpu#1 & cpu #2?? is it a dual core???

    Must be hyper threading in action..
  9. oh, so hyper threading causes it to show 2 logical cores? but really there is only 1?

    Something like that.. The fastest intel dual core is the E8600 clocked at 3.33 GHz..
  11. Remember that your motherboard probably doesnt support 45nm LGA 775 chips, so forget the 8xxx and 9xxx core2duos and quads. the 6xxx series is what you should be able to get.

    Also, did you forget caps lock was on for a bit? :D
  12. i did indeed lol. im not planning on using this board for the dual core. i was just wondering if the e2180 2gz was much faster than my current cpu.

    most games if not all these days require dual core as min requirements. i know the e2180 chips are entry level but i will upgrade to a better chip once i have more funds.
  13. Yes, a 2GHz 65nm C2D is much faster than Pentium4.
  14. Best answer
    The E2180 is about twice as fast as the P4 3.4GHz. The E2180 gets 1125 on Passmark and the P4 3.4GHz gets only 544. Look here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php to choose the best bang for the buck for your PC.
  15. 775 is good if he already has the mobo; given the speculation about Sandy Bridge and future compatability, I'm not too keen on i5/i7 right now...
  16. i was thinking about getting this mobo ECS / P965T-A and the E2180 2GHz that actually comes with it in the sale. im not paying much for it to be honest.£50 max
