I just want a quad-core processor on my machine. The motherboard of the machine is a D845GVSR Motherboard. The CPU is Intel® Pentium(4) CPU 2.60Ghz

I've got 512 MB of RAM in case anyone wants the info. Would I be able to replace my current processor with a *better* quad-core processor?

Nothing else matters to me(besides compatibility) other than just having a quad-core processor. Everything else can bite my bum.

You don't be getting a quad-core processor on that board, it doesn't support it. The CPU support list at http://support.intel...b/CS-026968.htm makes no mention of even dual-core. So if you want a quad-core you'll need a new motherboard.

Of course this kits pentium D3.4 is just as fast as the quad core. I am running a Q6600 on this computer and it is not any faster than my Core2 duo 2.2 computer.

Although the Pentium D is not a true core2 duo, you could always buy a core 2 duo or a quad core and sell the Pentium D. The price is the same on the core2 duo and the quad core. I just don't feel the computer uses the quad core much. All i see is one cpu being used in games.

Your choice,

I find the easiest method for me is to use Craig's List for my area. Anything else is almost not worth the hassle of setting up. I've tried Ebay, various local mini newspapers, and local computer websites with very disappointing results.

Like anything else when you are dealing with the public, be careful of all the wierdos out there. If someone starts getting even slightly weird with me from craig's list i politely tell them where to go and drop all contact with them. I guess that is why i have a Computer shop in my garage. It's my territory so people have to go by my rules, and if they don't they find themselves no longer on my property very quickly.
