Ok so i figured its time to buy or make a new computer. The only thing i would use out of my pc im using now is a intel 3.06 processor just to save some money because I figured 3.06 isn't all that bad right? ok so i started the search for a good store and wanted to start at cases and motherboards so i got searching and started seeing these duo cores. I'll try to make this shorter with just my questions
its dual processors topped on top of each other? or 1 with dual cores(chips w/e)? made that confusing but do you see where im going with this?
since its dual they would heat up faster right ? so would it be smart to get water cooling ?
is it really worth the money or would it be smarter to just get a plain motherboard and use my 3.06 Pentium i already have?( i dont do any gaming really)
putting that aside I want to try linux if any linux users are out there I wanna know some pros and cons from windows xp to linux. I'll be starting school in a few months possibly in Java developing so i need broaden my computer experience...
I got alot more question so if you use linux or have intel duo pc get in here pls thx in advance.
