Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading my pc. i've got an lga775 p5g41t motherboard. it supports core 2 duo and quad core processor. currently i'm running on pentium 4 630 64bit processor. I usually use it for gaming. I'm thinking of playing farcry 2, assassin's creed, dragon age 2, gta 4 etc. Which processor should i buy? Currently i'm on onboard graphics with shader model 4.0. Can i play above listed games without upgrading my processor and only by adding an extra graphic card? (That way i can save some money.)

FOR GAMING CORE 2 DUO E7500, 7600 Is good but its only 3mb cache speed calculation per sec is almost same an this model nos of core 2 duo equivalent to core i3. BUT CORE 2 DUO E8400 AND E8500 Is better because speed is higher and cache Mb also high equivalent to core i5.

core 2 quad q8300 is 2.50Ghz, 4 cores 4 threads.. better to buy this processor instead of dual core or core i3, i5 for those who have low budget..

dual core is like core i3.
core 2 duo is like core i5.
core 2 quad is like core i5, core i7. its depends on a model numbers of each processor.
note: i mean only latest models of dual core or core 2 duo or core 2 quad
