    None for me so far - I have a D 820 @ 2.8 GHz. I also have a gig of ram and
    an ATI X700 Pro graphics card [PCI-E].

    Thanks for your help. Guess I'll give the Pentium D a try then.

    Hi MTD:
    I have a Gateway 840 GM with a Pentium D processor, 1 GB RAM, 250
    GB hard drive and an ATI X800XL graphics card and I love it. Hard to
    believe I can simultaneously watch a live football game, surf the internet,
    rip a cd album to the hard drive and have a Norton full system scan going of
    the system! I think you'll love it and it will probably be great when you
    update to Windows Vista!

    A Pentium D is actually two Pentium 4's without HyperThreading.
    Or you could think of it as a Pentium 4 with HyperThreading, except the
    HyperThreading is'nt a virtual processor, its a real one.
