what are the best budget lga775 cpu

Go to solution Solved by SupaKomputa,

How budget are you? Most dual core 775 are only $10 the quad core are $20.

I suggest get Q6600 2.6ghz, which is very slow by today's standard.

Or get the faster quad core Q9650 but its rare and expensive.

A LGA771 Xeon? 

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

I mean, define "budget". Do you already have an LGA 775 mobo? If so, which one? If not, don't buy an LGA 775 mobo.

Sincerely,

None, save up for a newer CPU as you can't really use some modern games because SSE 4.2 is missing.

And the Quads are basically SMP Machines with two dual core CPUs. Connected via FSB. So that kinda sucks...

 

In the Mining Craze, you could have been able to sell your GPU for like up to 300€ or so...

 

Anyway, I'd rather not invest any cent in your system and look for other, more modern plattforms. Anything is an improvement...

Problem is its hella expensive, at least the Intel side...

Those are like 50-100€ or so...

That might work but an old i5-750 is beating the shit out of that...

Condolences...

You should retire that thing...

 

Though I'm also using a Core 2 Duo (T9300) System from time to time. Its still usable but barely. Not that much fun...

how much money?

 

technically the 'best' 775 cpu is actually a 771 Xeon, the Xeon X5492 but they're still about $100 used, 3.4 ghz quad core 1600mhz FSB.

 

however if you step down just a touch to the Xeon X5482 it is 3.2 ghz quad core 1600mhz FSB and you can pick those up for $20-30. This is assuming your motherboard can handle a 1600mhz FSB of course. Which motherboard do you have?

You can get them for 25€ or less. And when overclocked they're not much slower than overclocked i5-750.

 

When overclocked it's pretty close to a Ryzen 3 1200 on Cinebench R15.

i5-750 has DDR-3, so 16 GiB Memory are possible, maybe more.

Though it might be cheap, if lucky. LGA1366 Boards are rediculously overpriced...

 

The Prices of LGA1156 for example are also pretty rediculous, so that doesn't leave much used right now because of the high prices...

Ryzen 3 1200 is 4 Cores at only 3,1GHz base, max 3,4GHz Boost....

So lets assume 3,2GHz allcore Boost, that means that your ancient Dual Dual Core has to have 667MHz more Core clock for the same Performance.

And for the Power Draw, I'd say something aroudn 150-200W to 50W.


Yeah, awseome ?

 

And we're not even talking about the rediculous Memory Overclock of your System that requires some serious OC memory that's expensive and hard to get...

 

And that still doesn't solve the missing SSE4.2 or AVX at all...

Wich is the cause for some modern Games to not even start...

 

Either way, an R9-290 with an LGA775 System is weird. Not something i'd recommend...

A Radeon HD 7850 (or R9-270) with an i5-2400 or 3550 would have made more sense and be better in the end...

hold on a sec, why is this one marked as nest answer when they're suggesting a part that seems to barely edge out an E8500, a 45mn wolfdale based core 2 duo, and gets dunked on in single core performance by a CPU with less transisters according to https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core2-Duo-E8500-vs-Intel-Core2-Quad-Q6600/m13vs1980 . yea sure as of posting this they are dirt cheap on eBay but its still probably not the best option, and availability on eBay isn't look that great with only 3 showing up with the price set to 20 or less and the free shipping filter enabled  recommend one of the 8000 or 9000 series chips as they can also be found pretty cheap on eBay and because of the newer process node will use a little less power for the same performance and where as the Q6600 has a TDP rating of 105W on intel's ark site the 45nm parts have 95W TDP ratings instead meaning they don't only use a little less power they out put a little less heat meaning slightly more overclocking head room if you decide to do that. oh and yea sure the 9650 is relatively more expensive, especial to the classic but tbh trash Q6600, but just because its dirt cheap doesn't make it any faster and your right about the price to performance on the Q9650 being not good enough but going down a teir or more starts to bring the price to something more reasonable like the Q9500 can, as of posting this, be got for ~20 USD and is a little bit faster and has that fantastical 95W TDP rating and it's 1333 MHz FSB vs the Q6600's semi-lame in comparison 1066 MHz FSB

About a year ago I got a Q9505. Was very happy with that for the price. Core 2 Quad - 2.83ghz. Was $30 AUD ($21 USD). Was a nice upgrade over the E8500. 

The Q9550 is almost the same but has double the cache and tends to sell for quite a bit more as you are getting closer to the top SKU's for the socket.
