Without explaining in depth. just get Core 2 duo.

Also if you google like "cheep pc gaming rig" good things pop up. A few websites every so often have a build off making computers per price. Like under 500$ under 750$ under 1000$ and so on.

If it's this one (click HERE), then it is Wi-Fi ready. I doubt if it comes with Dual Core or not. The specs given on the technical specification document comes with Core 2 Duo.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

CONFUSION WITH INTEL CORE DUO AND INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE!


You are worrying about nothing.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron Dual Core are both Intel Core Dual processors.

The performance rate is mesured compared to a single core processor so your 2.2GHz dual core will do the same amount of work as a 4.95GHz single core.

Upgrade from pentium 915 D to dual core


The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.

Good luck- an t-adh leat!

Intel Core 2 Duo is the latest laptop processor intel has made so it is newer than the original dual core. They have a few different cpu's so depending on your budget choose the core 2 duo with the fastest speed you can afford. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Want to buy a new computer for personel use , which cpu is better dual core or core2duo girish email. girishpratap@yahoo.co.in


If you going to be using intensive programs like 3d editing, gaming, video editing, photoshop/image editing, or just multitasking and keeping alot of programs open you should get a faster cpu speed, and probably the core 2 duo. Core 2 duo (intel) is dual core and 64bit which gives more processing power, for some applications. Dual core is just normal processor (32bit) and just has 2 cores.

CPU is basically for the computers thinking/multitasking/processing info. If you want to multitask alot of programs your going to need processing power AND alot of RAM, the more the better/faster. If your going to be gaming or doing intesive stuff with graphics, you need a powerful video card. And hard disk is solely dependent on your storage needs too.

If your just going to be surfing the web, emailing, facebook, watching dvd's, and whatnot, any computer (new) should do you fine. But if you want HD video you need a powerful video card and processor.

Also When I mean powerful I dont mean the most powerful, just the mid-range of 'power'. So if you want to get anything more than basic, go for a mid-priced PC. Also this will let your computer last longer as updates and new software tend to slow down your computer, and you need more power to keep up with new stuff, but don't worry, it wont happen that fast!

Best gaming desktop configuration for 700$


dell has a good deal on a studio desktop pc Core 2 duo quad core but even without the monitor its 550, then you have to add a good video card, integrated cards are garbage and so is intel, so the good ones are anout $100-300 intel and amd

to keep cost down you could also go with a core 2 duo (dual core) but stay away from celerons they **** for gaming
check staples/office max/best buy/circuit city or dell dot com for good deals

some dell studio's are slim desktops and unless you get a video card from dell they can be hard to find(near impossible)

Cpu enquiry


There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

I hope this answered your question.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
