Yes. Any Intel Pentium 4 processor will fit fine. That said A P4 processor is fast, but the Pentium D is much faster. The D stands for Dual Core. This means that they have two on die processor cores instead of just one, as the Pentium 4 does. Two processors also makes it better for "demanding" applications.
The Pentium D is better if you have a motherboard that will utilize the technology. As stated the Pentium D is Duel core. This is Intel's way of creating the closest environment of a true duel processor. The HT is for Hyper-Threading which acts like a zipper and allows several applications to process at the same time. The Pentium D will really make a difference when used with the new 64 bit operating system.
However, HT (Hyper-threading) P4, does have emulated Dual Core processing. In short, the processor makes the computer think its runing a dual core. The Pentium 4 also has a couple different levels, so if you are trying to make a comparison, make sure that you look carefully.
Although neither can match the power of an Athalon or an AMD x2 processor. If you are buying, get something with 64 bit processing. WAY faster and better for games and high graphic systems.
Here are the requirements for the game. What graphics card are you trying to use? If your PC doesn't meet the specs, you may have to consider upgrading the RAM and graphics card. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS Assassin's Creed Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ RAM: 2 GB Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0 compliant sound card HDD Space: 12GB DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0 RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS Assassin's Creed Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better RAM: 3GB Video Card: 512 MB Card Sound Card: 5.1 Sound Card HDD Space: 12GB DirectX Version: DirectX 10.0
I'd advise don't start thinking below E2180. As per the performance go, E2180 and AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ are almost same but E2180 runs cooler. If you are going to use dedicated graphics card, go for E2180 and if you want a CPU for Integrated Graphics go for AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ because most of the 780G/790X chip-based AMD-compatible boards offer superior IGP.
I read this and don't believe you - yes the AMD dual core gets hot - yes AMD processor are HOT processors - is intel better - no there on par with AMD - the thu put rate is so close it doesn't matter - now vista basic is just that BASIC - if you want to bump it up - home premium 32 or 64 but ultimate 64 should get it going.
depends on what you plan to do with the cpu amd are good but a 3200 may only run @ 1.8 to 3.2 ghz depending while a intel 3200 will run 3.2 ghz.
I believe intel are more stable & run cooler than AMD but AMD benchmarks on Games better but run hotter (so get a good cooling fan & heatsink both pentium / celeron d & intel dou / dual core / core 2 dou and amd x2 have 2 cores (but watch your front side bus and cache the higher the better but the more $ also) then You need a good stable mobo that supports the chip you get (I preffer asus & msi for Gamers and biostar / msi for home users)
