  1. thanks mate thats great way of checking cpu performance diffrent ...:")
  2. shows my cpu getting spanked by a pentium d extreme 955 lol but its fine for my use
  3. Both the Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and the Pentium D 950 would spank that CPU.
  4. the pentium dual core feels just as fast even tho its only 1.6ghz . . . The pc is only being used to stream tv and watch movies while hooked up to my 32inch tv . . Does a good job . . Getting another tower tmaz . .hope its better . . Dnt no spek yet

    In general use for the most part it's going to feel as fast however, when you start dumping some heavy load on it you'll notice.

    But for what it's used for it's perfect.
  6. the tower im getting tomaz i think is core2quad.... im not 100percent .... but if it is a core2quad .... q6600 for example ... would it play games newer games if used with a decent video card as if it is gonna be good for games i will invest in a video card and experminent in pc games

    If you overclock it you would be able to play the majority of games out there without much of a problem especially if you pair it with a decent card.
