Would I notice the difference between these two bundles? One uses a Pentium D 925 / 2x 3GHz / Dual Core and the other an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 processor. The Mobos are different. The first one is £149 and the other is £180. If you follow the links, they are assembles mobo's with 1GB RAM and a 3 yr warranty.
Hi Donki, is that 3 a typo? It is a 2nd PC to be used for office (2007 which seems to hog resources)and MS Flight Sim. Also some PVR type functions so doesn't need the biggest & fastest, my AMD 3.2 Athlon copes admirably but I intend replacing the innards of a 1.6 P4.
I have a D925 in a desktop with much the same spec. and a Core 2Duo 1.8ghz mobile in a laptop. In Pifast the D925 benchmarks at 77.67 and the Laptop at 54.3 (lower the faster) However at simple things like opening files etc the D925 is much quicker and overall feels faster. I think it would depend on what you use the computer for. If you are looking to save £30 I do not think the D925 would disappoint. later
