Well, I would agree with snicko there...but what's cheap and expensive to you?I want to Run dolphin at Full Speed.
would a 3GHZ Dual Core possessor give a Full speed or a 4.5GHZ Dual Core processor and what Processor should I buy? Cheap or expensive with the Mentioned GHZ?
you'd be better off buying a Phenom II X2 550 or 720, 550 is comparable to E8400 in some cases and 720 is better in gaming unless you OC the E8400 through the roof (which it can)that e8400 processor has sockel 775! currently i have a amd phenom x3 8450 (sockel am2+) can i just put in the e8400 even if it has a different sockel?
This.E8600 is as good as it's gonna get....if you can afford it.
Hey Quad is expensive. Plus, E8600 will run Dolphin at full speed if he overclock it a little bitGet a QX9770. This guy wants to run Dolphin at full speed, didnt you hear him?
You can overclock a phenom II through the roof as well.
Well maybe not on stock, but with air cooling it surpasses 4 GhzNot without good cooling.... but yeah you can, but i'm not really into super high OC
I even undervolt my 720, and it still manage to reach 3.2GHz stable, with crappy cooler to boot!
man, i just love this CPU, totally worth the upgrade IMO
