Question about Intel Pentium D 915, 2.8 GHz (BX80553915) Boxed Processor
Hi my problem is that I cant play computer games on on my computer it is just to slow so I want to upgrade my single core processor to a dual core what should I do here some info
Pentium D 915 Socket 775 LGA 2.8 Ghz
Asustek lancaster8 motherboard
chip set i945g/gz
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!

You haven't said how much memory is on the board. You just might get away with putting more memory on it. If you want the dual core processor then you would have to find a processor ship that fits the 775 socket.
