  1. Second option will give you better performance. I'm sure e-350 is around atom level and definitely trail behind Pentinum. 4gf is enough. 500gb is good too. Either one of those graphic card will handle combat arms fine. That's the one by Nexon right? :P

    yeh the one by nexon cuz i got a latop with a core 2 duo and intel graphics and it lags bad
    or i got a desktop with a sempron and 1gb of ram and a geforce 6100 and it lags worse
  3. Mostly it's because of your internet. I think you will get more out of the 5450 and Pentinum. If it's possible you should at least go for core 2 duo. It's behind several generations so it shouldn't cost too much. What's your budget?

    The Pentium D is also around Atom level. These CPUs are pretty anemic.

    OP, what is your budget? Maybe we can help you find something a bit more capable. Are you in the U.S.?
  5. Quite frankly, if you're putting together a new computer, you can probably find friends/family with parts laying around that are this good. A $250 laptop with a T4500 would be more powerful and a P6100 laptop would beat that.

    DO NOT BUILD WITH A PENTIUM D UNLESS IT'S FREE.

    Otherwise, the Pentium Build you listed, but with a Core 2 Duo CPU instead (like an E6600) could be just fine.

    Btw, 8GB of RAM is pretty much useless for most tasks. Don't get it unless you know specifically what it's for.

    If you give us your budget and purpose, we'll give you a full list of parts that give you the best bang for your buck.
  6. Also, just get the 5670 if you're not buying a PSU.
  7. e 350 because it is a dual core processor with a good graphic ccard in it. while pentium d is just a single processor with higher consumption in electricity

    you might just be able to upgrade that system, whats the make/model of that system?

    i was wrong :P thought maybe it was an AM3 sempron based PC.
  14. m trying to spend 300- 400 i got a old dimension 3000 case ima use and i might paint it and a dd a couple fans

    would a athlon 11 x4 630 be better then the athlon ii x3 450?
    i already got a case


    how many fans has that dell dimensions 300 case got? i would reccommend atleast a from 120mm fan and atleast 1 80/92mm rear fan (not including PSU fan). the athlon 630 would be a not be a better choice unless you plan on OCing, or you plan on using games that can use 4-cores. the reason i chose the athlon 450 is that there is a chance of it unlocking to a phenom quad core, (or an athlon quad core).
  17. right now it has one 92mm fan in the back but im going to add 2 120mm fans at the bottum blowing up at the video card
  18. on the original question, an E-350 is better than an Atom which is a bit better than a Pentium.
  19. @kolec94--you really should start a new build thread using this form: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    The path you were heading down with the E-250 or Pentium D is...well, far less than good to put it lightly.

    Please fill out the form I just linked so we can help you. We'll need to know what country you're in and whether you live near a Micro Center, just to start out.
