    Whats the nearest match in Core DUO 2 to a D930 3.6 Dual Core

    Basically I have had an order in for a D930 3.6ghz machine for some time, and due to processor shortages the order can't be filled.
    Core DUO 2 seem plenty available but whats the minimum version of it I should ask for to keep performance on par or just a bit better?

    Currently trying for an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz 1066FSB which was based entirely upon me looking for something of equivalent price, but from the current sounds of it that will incur additional cost.

    Anybody who is more in the know care to comment? (oh edit this is for a Music PC: Cubase/Reason etc...)

    Depends what you want to do, but even the E6300 would be a better CPU. The Pentium D processors were hot and inefficient. Get a Core 2 Duo.

    You will want to make sure your motherboard supports Core2duo though.

    You can also overclock the **** out of an E6300

    Cheers lads. That'll be the minimum I'll hold out for, just wanted to make sure I'd be ok going from a high end of the old gen, to a midrange new gen.


    (Edit: Won't be overclocking. It's a pure workstation machine).

    Well you wouldne be going to a midrange new gen as the 6300 is the lowest of the core2duo. Its still very fast though!

    According to Toms CPU charts, the E6400 destroys the D930 by such a margin that I expect the E6300 to be much faster as well.

    I would suggest going for a conroe and a quad core compatible motherboard, so if you require INSANE computing power in the next few months you can stick a kentsfield in there The engineering model which is clocked lower than a x6800 completely demolishs it (i.e. conroe quad > conroe duo > Pentium D) I would find a link but im at work

    I definetly agree with that. Does your current MOBO compatible to C2D, and DDR2 ram?
    I can't understand why those of us who know the least, think of themselves to know the most!
