I've got an MSI MS-7536 945GCM478 DDR2 PCIe 16x motherboard.
I'd like to build a HTPC to watch full-HD movies, family recordings, youtube HD videos and playing Tanki Online MMO Flash Game.
I also have a Radeon 6450 PCIe 16x 1GB HDMI VGA and a Samsung Full HD HDMI monitor
I've found 2 great CPU's, but each of them has a little incompleteness.
Which one would be better for my purproses?
+: 64 bit (example CPU)
+: Windows 8/8.1 x64 compatible by NX bit exists
-: one thread in the core
?: Is it a REAL s478 one or a notebook s479, what is shown az PPGA478 on Intel's page as the other notebook Socket M & Socket P CPU'S?
-: 32 bit
-: Win7 x86 max
So, which one would you use, or any other cheap, fast and "cool" alternative?
The Intel® Pentium 4 processor 538 is listed as a mobile processor while the Intel® Pentium 4 processor 511 was available for two different sockets (LGA775 and mPGA478) for both retail box and OEM. At this moment only the motherboard manufacturer can provide a list of compatible processors.
We can only recommend buying Intel® processors from authorized distributors or resellers.
