    i have a Intel Pentium Dual 64 775 on a gateway desktop, and I'm really getting frustrated with the performance when i play any game that has decent graphics, i have a nvidia gt8500 1gb video card, 4gb ram, and still have to turn my settings all the way down to play a game without the frps taking a poop, should i buy a new processor? and if so what intel processor should i get?

    Go ahead . It's you computer. Have you upgraded the power supply and the CPU heatsink to deal with the extra power needed and heat generated?

You can't overclock that processor in a Dell system, the bios won't allow it. You could try it in an aftermarket motherboard but you are asking for too much extra. 10-20% is reasonable, possibly more with liquid cooling. Keep in mind your system will probably be unstable at first, until you get all the adjustments for memory timing and bus speeds just right. It is a lot cheaper and less trouble to just buy a faster computer.

Try your local (not part of a "big-box" chain) computer-store. They may have a "pre-owned" one.

Or, look on eBay: http://shop.ebay.ca/?_nkw=SL6WK

where there currently are 40(!) auction-listings.

Is it worth replacing pentium 4 1.7ghz with 3ghz one


The 3 GHz socket 478 processor will cost you about $90 shipped. Not worth upgrading for that cost in my opinion, when you can buy a whole new computer for $400 new, or a much better computer for 1/2 that used.
