The LGA775 were the last/best - if the motherboard is a later one that supports the Core2 CPU then there's an easy upgrade path. I know the P4 is SEVERAL generations removed from currentish gen processors, but could you do a trim install of Win7 and shove as much RAM as possible into it so

Real multicore of course is much better. We are disabling aero for performance reasons not for ram saving! (If people are concerned the P4 doesnt have enough ooompf) With a "lite" install I'm sure 512MB would be fine

Nevermind .... Sorry There was an error emailing this page. Like the Pentium D box, however, the processor almost continually runs at full load doing the most basic tasks. However Windows 10 does support the 1024 x 600 displays found on many netbooks.

After all, if you visit cetain sites you are targeted for extra spying http://boingboing.ne...oing-the-n.html Could use it to mine cryptocurrencies At least use it as a file server or Windows 10 Lite The 2006-era Pentium D is a borderline lost cause for all but the most basic computing tasks. razaron says thanks.

I'm thinking of using it mainly for my iTunes sync (actual media files are on a network share) and maybe MS Office (not intensively).

What are you doing wrong? I've ran Fractal renders for weeks at this setting. It can handle 'modern' tasks, but not nearly as quickly as my 'new' i5 machine. Other then that, would love your ideas on things that might be fun to try or perhaps recommended uses or things to try in general.

The Cryengine is probably going to be the standard for all games to come so if you play Crysis you're fine for the future.
