    Will i see a difference?

    I have an Intel 3.2ghz 640 P4... now i decided to upgrade with this with an A-Bit GR-Ni8 and now im wondering if getting say a 930 or a 940 ill see a better improvement in speed, power consumption etc?

    do they also run cooler? (i am using an AC Freezer Pro though)

    Just wondering if when conore is released and they reduce the prices it would be worth it..

    Not really much difference in power and heat, and also not much in speed either - probably slower for single threaded apps, you'd only gain the multithreading.

    Definately consider going for core 2 instead if you want a change.
