Re: New processor?

Whats the difference between a Dual and a Quad core? Dual = 2 cores and Quad = 4 cores... typically 2 cores will run at a slightly higher clock speed but 4 cores can do more work.

 

What does it mean if it has a turbo boost? Turbo boost is a system that "overclocks a small number of cores when less the the full number of cores is being used.

 

I have a generation 3 motherboard? YES and NO.

 

And is there any way that software would make so i cant us a specific processor? NO

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Re: New processor?

So then what generation processor do I buy then?
Or would I be better to buy a duel package of a processor and a motherboard? (only willing to spend $300)

Sorry to ask so many questions gotta get some bang for my buck.

Re: New processor?

You can use select 2nd and 3rd generation Intel CPUs. Best bang for the buck will most likely be;

 

Intel Core i5-3xxxS (Ivy Bridge) Quad Core up to 65 W (maybe an i5-3550S)
Intel Core i5-3xxx (Ivy Bridge) Quad Core up to 77 W
or
Intel Core i7-2xxx (Sandy Bridge) Quad Core up to 95 W

However, I would go with the Intel Core i5-3xxxS (Ivy Bridge) Quad Core up to 65 W because it wouldn't require upgrading the stock HSF (heatsink and fan).

 

Buying a new motherboard/CPU combo may require replacing many other components and purchasing a new OS. definitely not the way to go.

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Re: New processor?

Re: New processor?

Because this is a Slimline computer, it isn't designed or meant to be a gaming class computer. Upgrading the CPU will do little for your overall gaming experience. To improve your gaming experience, would require upgrading the power supply and installing a discrete graphics card. This will be a challenge, considering the small size of the case and non-standard power supply.
