Under your forum options in there should be a tab where you can type in your PC's configuration and it'll show up when somebody wants more info on you.
@rolli: like a Pentium D 820? This is an interim solution as I plan on getting a Radeon HD 6770(if it ain't a rebadged 5770) later this year and want a slightly better CPU to go with it.
E520s use a BTX board so I can't simply switch mobos(if I could I would have switched to a H55 board by now with an i7 to boot). Rolli are you sure I won't get much because I plan on playing mostly older games(MOH: Airborne, SW: Battlefront 2, Empire at War, Universe at War) and using the quad later to play the newer games(Bioshock 1/2, World in Conflict, Hawx) that support dual and quad core processing.
You will get some but I am not sure how much there is 20%+ clock speed difference and more cache so maybe a 25% performance increase. Being a dell overclock is out of the question so this might be your only upgrade path.
Thanks for the help guys, I plan to get the 945 on Saturday along with some AS5. Like I said this won't be a permanent CPU I plan to get a Q6700 once I'm old enough for a debit card and an ebay account(maybe the price will fall below $180 who knows).
