roger1;3305262well ive just looked at my mobo again and there is a number right below the chip on it that has the word intel printed on it, i typed the number in google and it showed me a mobo with this chipset "D945GPM" :nodding: would this b any good news for the future of me getting a core 2 duo, my real reason for the core 2 duo is that im scared that my current pentium d 2.8 820 processor wouldnt do the trick with flight simulator X even with a 7900gt.

Generally speaking, the processor is mostly used to load level data into your ram. So if you have enough ram (2 gigs is what I would recomend), the processor won't be doing much while you're flying. And it won't hamper your performance.

Wouldn't it be a better idea to buy the game first, see how well it works, and upgrade if needed? A game you can't play properly is cheaper than a processor upgrade you don't need.

That's the motherboard, not the chipset. The board is equipped with the 945G chipset and does not support Conroe.

Your processer is fine, according to microsoft a 1Ghz CPU is required to play, and you have a dual core 2.8Ghz. That Pentium D should not give you any problems with games.

The most important parts for gaming IMO are (in order): 1. Ram 2. Video Card 3. Processer

Ram and video card are interchangable, it all depends on which is worse.

C38368;3304839The 1066MHz FSB debuted awhile back on some Smithfield Extremes, which is what your board supports.

It actually started on the second Prescott EE http://www.intel.com/products/processor/pentium4HTXE/

A core Duo on my new syestm would suck, my celeron (dual) has more power.

A Core Duo would completely own any Celeron.

You should know, a Celeron D is not a dual core processer. Also, as far as i know there only avialable up to 3.46Ghz, unless your overclocking it.

Nice link, given that it doesn't say which actual processor type it's talking about; that page covers P4EEs from 3.2GHz to 3.73GHz, with 800MHz and 1066MHz Buses and on both Socket 478 and LGA775. In other words, every one Intel ever made... :p

I believe the first P4EE to have 266MHz (give or take 0.5MHz) on it's FSB was the 3.46GHz Gallatin model. It's the processor they mean when they say 'to 3.46 GHz' on the Intel page. Pre-dates the Prezza you're thinking of by 5 months or so. Naturally, that means it pre-dates the Smithfield and Presler as well. :p

:eek:
