1) Pentium 4 561
2) Pentium 4 630
Hi, I was going through my old box of parts and goodies, when I noticed I have enough parts to build a PC. So I wanted to build the best out of all the parts I had, and I was hoping if some Pentium heads here could help me out.
Which one out of the two is the best CPU to go with? Before jumping to conclusions, bare in mind (here is were I got stuck) the 630 has a 2MB cache, opossed to the 561 which only has 1MB. But the 561 is clocked 600Mhz faster, and is probbally more overclockable.
So the question is, which would be the "fastest" CPU out of the two under full load on most general
applications i.e photoshop?
1) Pentium 4 561 1MB Cache - Overclocked to 3.8Ghz?
2) Pentium 4 630 2MB Cache - Overclocked to 3.2Ghz?
I just want the "best" out of what I have, so I can set up the machine and wouldn't have to bother with it again. My idea was to flog of all the other parts on ebay as I'm clearing out the house. (a 561 sold for £34 on ebay a few weeks ago - so theres some money to it I guess.)
