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.

I would like to upgrade this processor, what do Intel 2140


I would recommend upgrading to something with quad-cores and something that will fit into the LGA775 socket.

You can go with a Core i7 but that would require you to upgrade your mobo and your RAM. Costing you about 400 more dollars.

So I would recommend a Core 2 Quad Q8300 from intel.

Compatible upgrade processor for intel pentium


The E5200 would be a nice upgrade. It retails on Newegg.com for 65-69.00 and usually has free shipping. And if you have a compatible motherboard and purchase a nice heatsink, it overclocks very nicely.

Gta- iv is not working in my pc


GTA IV is a very poorly coded game and has trouble running on even some of the best PC's.  Do you have 2gigs of RAM and 280MB free?  Either way, you will certainly need a very very good video card to play this game.  What video card do you have now?  Did the game work before you installed vista ultimate?  Is the game also pirated?  If so it's quite possible you downloaded a bad version.
