    i7 speeds are ridiculous. I doubt nothing will be touching them right now, besides those i7 extremes [​IMG]

    I wonder if the Mac Pros will include an option to add in an i7 "Nehelem" extreme quad-core

    just because you can achieve those speeds doesnt mean it is 100% stable
    you have to run some stress test for a few days to see if it is stable enough
    and even if it is stable, it will shorten the life span of your computer
    I use to OC a lot back in the days and some hardware will always die within 1.5 years or less, usually the motherboard or power supply
    YMMV

    Intel Pentium IV; 2.8 GHz; 1 GB ram

    It's fast for the most part but would any of you care to share an opinion on whether or not you'd upgrade?

    I was trying to OC my comp but never figured it out

    I have an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad-Core processor, 2.61 GHz, 4GB of RAM


    Im sure I have a decent comp but again, after I build this baby I never figured out the language lol. So if anyone wants to shed some knowledge let me know.Right now I just copy DVD's with two DVD drives which handle pretty well when both are running at max speed and multi task at the same time

    dont even waste ur time and money upgrading a pentium 4
    pentium 4s are pure garbage, even net books are faster than that
