D8 I've sold away my i7 920 D0 for a Xeon E5540!!! how stupid T_T, my dad had 5 E5540s and he offered me one because it turns out 4 were enough for his needs
I was looking for a greater performance to improve the gaming and multimedia potent of my pc so I accepted the dad's offering and sold the "better truth"(i7 920D0) off.
I just found something called "Passmark" on the google with keyword "E5540 benchmark" there showed that E5540 got a worser result than i7 does,
My current specs:
E5540 D0 2.53ghz with xigmatek dark knight cooler
3gb DDR 3 Corsair TR 3X3G-1600C8D
1tb + 2x500gb sata II hdd( all wd caviar black)
PSU 700watt pure
<Ps: I don't overclock>
As the title said:
Have I made a big mistake?
pls at least shed a light to me T_T
