Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Really disappointed with dual core

ASUS P5B-V motherboard, Intel E6600 dual core duo cpu & 4Gb kingston memory. Maxtor 320Gb SATA hard drive.Win XP Pro,& AVG software. This machine (loaded 4 times now) is much slower than my old Pentium 4 3,2Ghz ASUS Terminator T2. It has identical software loaded but just lags when opening Outlook, my computer, internet etc. Even my Celeron 1.7 lappy is quicker. I have checked the cpu with passmark. Also done a full load check on the system. All passes ok. I reckon i should go & buy a Pentium 2 3.8 cpu. Can you recommend the correct model number that will fit the LGA 775 socket & is compatable with the G965 express chipset on the ASUS P5B-V. I am really getting depressed.

    Many thanks to GAUMZEE. I am not wildly experienced at pc's so you may need to explain some details. My C: drive is the 320Gbyte SATA & I keep all my media etc on a separate 320 Gbyte hard drive. So, I have only program files on the C drive.
    1) As I use a separate hard drive for my files, I take it I don't need to partition the 80Gbyte HD? simply reload all my programs?
    2) You said 'Make this primary'. Does yout mean just make this the system 'C' drive?
    3) I don't have a clue how to increase the virtual memory size of my system?
    4) If I took the Single core Pentium 4 route, could I fit a 3.6 or even 3.8Ghz CPU?
    5) When I check these for features, they never mention compatability with G965 express chipsets. Are they o.k.

                thankyou again. I'm off to purchase an 80Gbyte hard drive at the weekend and will do all you recommend. I will get back to you soon, hopefully with a success story.

You can buy a 3.02 pentium 4 processor and need not change any thing else. On the other hand try changing your hard disk with a one with smaller capacity such as 80 GB make it primary with the windows partition not exceeding 15 GB . Make this drive (80 GB )primary and other one secondary.Increase the virtual memory size of your system and for sure you wont need to buy any thing or be depressed anymore.

    1. You Have to Partition the 80 GB drive with first patition not    exceeding 15 Gb.That is The C: drive and then load the programs.

    2. Yes By making it a primary drive you have to use it as primary master. Check for Jumper settings if Ide drive  and if Using Sata drive Plug it on Sata 0 port and install operating system on it.

    3.For Increasing Virtual Memory Size right click the my computer Icon , Click Advanced Tab, In performance option click Settings then click advance. Below that in virtual memory tab click change. Increase the size as permissable by the system around 1800 - 5000 .

    4.Yes you can always use Single core processors with the mother board model 965.


    Good luck.

Which intel motherboard ( model detatil) is suitable for an intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?also what should be the capacity of ram that may suitably mathe the intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?

Assuming the CPU you have is an E5300 2.6 duo 45nm then use an LGA 775 mobo.

For Win XP / Vista run at LEAST 2gb (Preferably 4GB) Ensure the mobo specs are compatible with the type of ram also.

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.

Are they compatible?

Hi, your cpu currently in the machine should be a 754chipset, only way you would be able to put a core duo processor in the machine would be to replace the motherboard, cpu, and probably the memory.. to DDR2
