Hi guys.
I have just upgraded from a XP2600+ to this piece of kit hoping to see a big difference in speed but at the moment i cant see it.i hope this was a wise move!!!

I ran 3dmark05 and only got 2449...is this good?

I have not touched any of the settings (too scared) and my cpu temp is 45c and i'm not doin anything!! my last processor used to run at 29-31c

It depends on the apps you are using. You won't see much of a difference if all you do is simple word processing. If you do things like gaming, then you should see a big diff. I'm not familiar with 3dmark but maybe somone else can explain that score cause I am clueless.
