See picture below(look at how many files are fragmented). vvvvvvvvvvv



Not really, but I actually made this to ask if this was a good purchase.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Pentium-D-Processor-945-3-4GHz-4M-800-SL9QQ-775_W0QQitemZ250509768644QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCPUs?hash=item3a538bb7c4
(If for any reason you can't view the link, it's a Pentium D 945 processor for $70(~47 euros).)

I don't really know processor prices too much, and this looked like a good deal....so I bought one.

Would this be a big improvement over my crappy Celeron D 356(3.33GHZ)?


BTW: This is all the processors my motherboard can take:
Quote:

* Socket: 775
* Supports the following processors:
o Pentium D 900 series (Pressler, 65nm)
o Pentium 4 601 series (Cedar Mill, 65nm)
o Celeron D 3xx series (Cedar Mill, 65nm)
o Celeron D 3xx series (Prescott, 90nm)

So, it's the only dual-core series I could get, and the higher ones(950, 955, and 960) were too expensive.

And that leads me to ask, why is Intels naming so messed up? Pentium D is dual-core, but Celeron D is not....Seriously, what's going through their heads when they name this stuff.

x86 CPUs, Intel's CPUs, Intel's naming convention, or his computer?

i would go for 2nd hand pc, coz they are cheap and good Razz Razz
well, most of my pc(s) are 2nd hand, including my laptop.

the truth is, they are cheap to purchase, about 1/3 of the price compare to the new one, but somehow, who really needs those 4.0GHz processor speed to browse p0rn site??? lol Razz

i got an intel core 2 duo T7500 laptop at the price 1/3 of the new one.

i would really suggest go for 2nd hand / 3rd hand, coz best value.


i like those refurb server (available in US & UK) but not malaysia, they are cheap. really... try google and check, but specs is sort of enough to run cool things.

The problem with that is you inherit someone else's problems, not just with the physical damage the computer may have, but any little critters that might've found their way into your home now. My laptop's keyboard went out on me, so i had to get a new one but i could only find refurbished parts. It hasn't broken down on me, but i know right away when i finally got it where it'll break down first if the keyboard, again, breaks down before something more important.

Ok, just got it in the mail this morning. Seems to be running great. Idling at around 43c, gets to around 62c under full load. Big improvements everywhere over that old piece of crap I had.
