I Have a P4 3.06ghz processor o.c to 3.7ghz and a 2gb ddr3 ram....
My socket is Lga 775 so i want to upgrade my processor other all parts r new jst buyed 6 months ago...
which processor wud be preferable core 2 duo e6600 or pentium e5700 ???
i m confused between the 2...??? ...which will give a better performance in gaming .... if o.c ... afterwards??
also i have have a hd 5750 ati graphics so no worrying for graphics only is for processor...?

1st make sure your motherboard can support the Pentium E5700 (3.0GHz) or Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4GHz). Overall the E5700 should give you better performance because of the higher speed.

The primary difference between the Pentium E5700 and the C2D E6600 are:

1. The FSB on the E5700 is 800MHz vs. 1066MHz of the C2D E6600. Basically it means the RAM will be a little slower, but this should be mostly offset by the higher speed of the CPU.

2. There is 2MB of cache rather than 4MB of cache. This should not be much of an issue for games.

3. The Pentium lack SSE4 extensions. Not a big deal for games since they are mostly used for video encoding and probably decoding purposes.


The Pentium E6600 (3.06GHz) should not be much more than the E5700. It's FSB is 1066MHz so data transfer will be faster than the E5700.

Thanks for the reply jaguar ... I m basically looking for a gaming processor so acc. to it whch one is better 66 or 57 ... ya and my motherboard supports both the processor ... its gigabyte g41-m combo board and the ram is 2gb kingston 1333mhz ddr3 planning to upgrade it to 4gb as well....!!!

As well as on my current configuration with p4 i can run MW3 at max settings and 1600*1200 reso @ 32 - 35 avg fps .... bt cdn't run battlefield 3 or run such smoothly ... it lags alot .....so shifting to e5700 will give me a performance boost?? or not and is my hd 5750 sufficient for current games...!!!

The E5700 will definitely give you a performance boost because the newer architecture is more efficient than the old Pentium 4 and because it is a dual core processor which is minimum for most modern games. However, as I stated, if you can you should get the Pentium E6600 instead of the Pentium E5700 because the E6600 allows you to use faster RAM and should provided slightly faster performance.

Hmmmm... Bt if i O.C.. the ram frequency and processor fsb slightly to match e6600's ...than e5700 wud be best right ..???.
And What abt my graphic card ... hd 5750... is it sufficient to run current generation games...
