Closed Intel Pentium D 830 vs Core 2 Duo P8400 Tags: CPUs Pentium Cache Last response: November 21, 2011 8:20 PM in CPUs Share Galwynd December 13, 2010 4:55:59 PM Another dumb question cause I'm new to this How would a Intel Pentium D 830 (3.0ghz / 2mb cache / 800fsb) compare with a Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.2ghz / 3mb cache / 1066 fsb)? I'm rebuilding my girlfriends computer and would like to know if I can expect similar performance from the older desktop's D830 as from my current laptop's P8400. Any input would be very much appreciated! P.S. Would it be wise to spend $90 and grab a D 960 (3.6ghz / 4mb cache / 800fsb) ??? Would I see a huge performance increase?
