    Yes there will be a difference. Check out the CPU charts at Toms Hardware:
    (It'll be different based on different hardware, but not much. For example, they are using a P35 chipset MB.)

    Another Question....What's the difference with the Intel Processors..

    Will I notice a large difference with computer gaming with a different type of processor?

    There is the Intel Core 2 Duo
    than the Intel Core 2 Quad
    than the Intel Core 2 Extreme


    I was thinking about getting a Intel Core 2 Duo

    Will I notice a major Difference if I get the Extreme or Quad Core? It'll be mainly for gaming...

    I might disagree with overkill on the ram...

    Even if you're doing small video editing, doing that plus gaming -- you'll probably want more RAM.

    I'm going to be probably building a computer at some point. Getting it little by little. Preferably a non-Windows system. Or multiple OSes if I can swing it.

    Either that or just get everything from a Mac store.

    I agree with the above poster the MB has been know have certain issues but you should be fine. A bit of overkill (IMHO) on the Ram, but that is your choice and i'd probably do the same thing. Check your prices against newegg, pcmall and tiger direct. I just bought an 500GB 7200 IDE internal HD for my wife's machine at newegg and found it was a few bucks cheaper through tiger direct and they were offering free 2nd day shipping. So shop around.

    As long as you don't put Vista on it you'll be fine.

    The MB is known to have issues...

    But otherwise - not too shabby.

    Calling All Computer Techs! Building a PC

    Okay so I'm not a computer tech or wiz, my friend builds computers for a living and told me to compile everything I will be putting in it and he will help me build it up and show me a thing or two....So here it is, this is what I plan on building...My main purpose will be for gaming / business and small video editing...so Here it is...

    I was curious if this was all compatible with one another and would work well....I've read a lot about each product, but I do understand some products / brands work better together / not together, etc..so if anybody has any input please let me know!



    Here is what I will be putting into the PC:

    MOBO: EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

    PROCESSOR: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Conroe 3.0GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6850 - Retail

    HARD-DRIVE: Seagate Barracuda ES.2 ST31000340NS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

    MEMORY: OCZ 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P8004GK - Retail

    VIDEO CARD: EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

    POWER SUPPLY: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W Power Supply - Retail
