I recently purchased a new computer that was delivered with a bad CPU. I was told that as a replacement I could receive a 2.6C Northwood or a 2.8E Prescott CPU. I was wondering which one would be a better choice. I play a lot of 3D intensive Games on my system. I am looking for the processor that would perform best since I am not having to pay anything extra to have either of these sent to me.
My current system specs are:
Windows XP Professional
Intel Corporation D865GLC
1536 Megabytes Installed Memory
nVidia 6800 GT 256 MB Video Card
30.74 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
Creative SB Live Sound Card.
I am using an Intel Motherboard so I don’t plan (can not) on O/Clocking.
Thanks for your help.
