Sorry, I am not up to date on computer stuff right now, but is that all the Extream Edition gives you? Extra cache?

yes and it is still slower than the Athlon 64 FX-51 in games and that is the market Intels aims at.

If you are out for a high end gaming machine better get an Athlon64 FX-51 system.

Kinda rediculous...lol, as these benchmarks FX vs. P4EE. You are gonna find they lean back and forth, value would probly be the primary concern at this point since they are all too new.

Unless you think $808 for a CPU and over $220 for the mobo is a great value?

Peace,

:D

Hmm it is available at Dell, however to upgrade from a 3.2Ghz HT to a 3.2P4EE is an EXTRA $2000!!! And it won't ship for a month.

But I guess for some people it's worth it...

P4EE (http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?cs=19&oc=DXPSEP&m_11=WHXP&m_22=BASICC&m_1=MPE328H&m_29=S3OS&c=us&l=en&s=dhs&kc=6V413)

P4 3.2 (http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?cs=19&oc=xps&m_11=WHXP&m_22=BASICC&m_1=MXP328H&m_29=S3OS&c=us&l=en&s=dhs&kc=6V413)

The Alienware system is only $627 to upgrade from a P4 3.2 to a P4EE. Crazy, but not nearly as crazy as Dell.

The P4EE @ Dell is far faster they are using RAID (120GB x2) hard drive DVD RW etc, while the standard P4 3.2 uses the basic 120GB drive and DVD/CD-RW combo drive, so thats going to greatly increase the cost also.
