could you kindly explain to someone who is not technically minded why you would buy this item ?

is it to upgrade your current computer/laptop and improve its performance by any chance?

Currentl have an Athlon 5600 Dual core 2.9 is this much faster?
Also would it work with my mobo? Asus M2V?

It's a processor, which is the brains of your computer. However, it will only fit on certain motherboards, so don't buy it and hope to fit it straight off, you need to check whether your current motherboard is compatable and if not, then you'd need to build a new PC.

I suggest you build it with someone who knows exactly what you're doing. If one pin gets crushed by accident on the processor/motherboard you might as well have put your cash your kitchen sink and left it in water for two days before swirling it around with a fork.

Wouldn't be that much of an increase unless you overclocked it.

Probably not, as your motherboard appears to support only AM2 CPUs, whereas this one's an AM2[COLOR=red]+[/COLOR].

Hmm, looks like you've actually done that gooddeals9 :p - either that, or you have a morbid imagination.

Is this a faster or better cpu than the Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5GHz Socket 775 800FSB 2MB Cache?
#10
If you want to upgrade id go for the Amd 720

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/343184/amd-phenom-ii-x3-720-black-edition-/

these will hit 3.8 - 4 Ghz,

i used to run a AMD 5600, i upgraded to the AMD 940

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/383447/amd-phenom-ii-x4-quad-core-940-blac/

Wow now this is fast. :)

I doubt you'd notice much of a performance improvement if your machine is already optimised. If you're looking for performance gains your money may well be better spent elsewhere. How much RAM do you have and what operating system are you running? There are always good deals on matched pairs of RAM.

Also, consider why you want/need performance gains. Are you a gamer? running a recent version of photoshop? You might be better investing in a new graphics card as this may be a severe bottleneck in your current system. If you're just looking for snappier performance from your operating system, more RAM is probably your best value for money option if you've got a GB (or less).

Possibly, but AMD and Intel CPUs aren't the same inside, so chips within the same price bracket can be interchangably faster or slower depending on what app they're running. Decide which is best for your by writing "toms cpu charts" into your firefox address bar, hitting enter, and browsing what comes up.

If you are running Vista the best possible upgrade right now is free for the next 12 months.

Windows 7 RC arriving on later this week!

It extremely quick and then upgrade again in a years time.

I tried windows 7 in the beta testing and it's awful, I don't like the fact they've changed how you nvaigate, the big icons are annoying and they way it clumps together what your working on at the bottom is frustrating, I could never find anything, ended up going back to vista after only 4 days of trying it.....everyone says Microsoft is trying to copy apple with W7 yet Vista outsold Mac OS10 so surely they have the winning formula? why copy mac? I like Vista and will be sticking with it..

This will have little impact on Vista users who have already had to shellout for 2 gigs of ram .

But I tried Windows 7 on a 512 meg ram AA1 (1.6Ghz netbook sata) and was truly impressed.
I hade firefox , adobe reader and openoffice write running fine - speedwise about 90%-95% of XP

This is a real gob-smacker compared to vista.

7 will have more impact at the low end of the hardware range, imho.

But Hey , it's free - it is a nice slick fast toy and way more configuarble than vista.

Just dont expect recognisable performance improvements unless you go through the whole optimisation process

You realise you can change the size of those icons etc?

yeah, and you can make it look just like vista too. i dont know why somebody would prefer vista over it as its slower and more annoying

btw whoever mentioned RC1 coming out its been available on certain sites for nearly a week :) its awesome

I'm just holding off 'til the 5th to get it off MS's website, but I've noticed by W7 beta has no expiry date on it anymore which is odd :?

I've a question about installing the RC, can you just install over the top of the beta and keep all your old files etc. or does it have to be a clean install?

Microsoft recomend a clean install of Windows 7. I think it *might* go over the beta, but it has chnaged so much i would not risk it.

I am running build 7077 of Windows 7 and apart from a few stalls I have found it awesome.

Great post, just building a friend a PC and might have to change my components, cheers.

Nor would I, some people get away without clean installs I have problem after problem when I do not do them.
Definitely worth the hassle, I partition my HDD so I can just swap files over very quickly.
Recently taken an image of my HDD too so I will see how that works out when windows gets clogged up.
#22
Bought one of these yesterday, ever so slightly cheaper at £48.14 inc VAT.

Big icons - you can choose different sizes.
You can customize the task bar.

4 days isn't enough to test it, it's better than Vista.

You can not update windows 7 beta to windows 7 rc1. It needs to go into a new partition.

Can anyone recommend a decent motherboard that will go with this?

I've got a tired AMD 3000 processor and need to upgrade.....I've thought recently computer packages are so cheap it might just be worth starting over again as I'll need so memory too as only have 1.5 gig PC3200 .

On the SCAN today Only page there are 15 AM2+ Mobos allfrom ASUS ranging from £40 to £120
( and 2 SLI boards)
http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx
ASUS is a safe bet - I am not saying it is the absolute best value ,but if you buy the CPU there and the RAM there then it is likely that that your saving on postage/grief will justify the purchase.

ARIA EbuYER MicroDirect Dabs etc etc

I end up dealing with fewiest possible because you end up waiting forout-of-stock itemsto turn up for the build

I dont want to spend more than £100 to be honest ..... would I have to buy a fan, or could i use the fan from my athlon 3000?
#27
@BREZ

It is a retail CPU - so it should come with a heat sink and fan ( intel retail do ?)

The board looks a safe bet 4 memory slots , VGA and DVI graphics onboard and a 4 different DDR2 Ram bus speeds

It is a safe average low feature board for £40 odd quid , if you want overclocking and Esata look elsewhere.......

Your old ram may handicap the CPU quite badly - still be way faster than old chip. If your ram is really slow it could be incompatible - others forum members may be able to help you on this

For build advice I suggest you ask in the hardware forum on hexus.net

If you don't want to register on another forum then find your motherboard on newegg.com and if 4 & 5 star rating >80% from a large number of users then it will be fine.

You probably want a AMD 780G motherboard.

If I was to buying an AMD board I'd get a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4.
#29
Thanks for your help lads, I'll have to get some memory too it seems......

Ive got a Geforce PCI Express graphics card so that should be OK.

Much appreciated!

It is a retail edition - however it's a Black Edition, which, iirc, don't include the heatsink, as they're classed as specialist editions where buyers would normally use their own choice heatsink.

The other thing is that all the black edition CPUs are unlocked (with one exception - the 6400) so suitable for overclocking.
#31
Retail versions come with a heatsink and have a 3 year warranty. The tiny silver square you can see on the end of the box is the cpu itself.

Oem versions do not come with a heatsink, have a 1 year warranty and are sold in a tiny box not much bigger than the cpu.

Sorry mate, mixed messages on this...so will it come with a heat sink / fan or not?

Im looking at buying this now together with a motherboard for around £50 and then probably around 3gb of different memory as my current pc3200 wont hack it.

Any help is much appreciated, I think this looks like the best processor for around £50 that there is out there at the mo....

What do you mean by optimised? how do I do this?

My video card is a serious issue I think, it has the lowest score of my components in my win7 experience score, I wouldn't want to spend more than £50 on a card though!!

I don't play any games at all, I use photoshop/Paint shop pro but very rarely and for basic stuff.
I have 4GB of RAM, matched speeds but unsure of timings.

The main use of my PC is for downloading (I have a 20mb line :-D ) and ripping .avi to DVD. I assumed that a faster processor would make encoding faster.
But I have heard about GPU encoding which is why I think I need to upgrade my video card too. I've got a ATI Sapphire 512mb I think? not at home at the mo i'd have to check
