Hello i know the the 775 chip is ancient lol
I just want to upgrade the cpu in my mobo and not mess with anything else.
I have a core 2 duo e6400.I want to upgrade to something a little faster then the 2.13ghz it has. I was looking at the core 2 duo e8200 and the pentium dual core.
I know the pentium dual core is a newer chip and clocked higher and the benchmark i saw of it says its much better in the test.
If you just have to try and upgrade obsolete tech then spend as little money as you can. Maybe even think about overclocking what you have now. A $20-$30 CPU cooler is a better investment than another obsolete CPU. You will get decent bump by changing CPUs for sure but probably not as much as you think.
Interestingly Tom's CPU hierarchy chart has the E8200 one tier above the E5800.
