In single thread/core applications, is a i3-3110M laptop processor faster than a Q9450?

Yeah, they left me blue for a year or two and finally replaced me.

I'm doing good. Off work for a few weeks waiting for the arrival of my first little one.

I literally have the exact same setup right now, minus a different mobo.

Picked up a 3570k, 24gb DDR3 1066 (16gb for $45, the motherboard I bought came with 8gb of the same exact stuff for free), and a 120gb SSD. I feel the 570 will last a bit longer before I need to upgrade it for anything. Like you said, the CPU is the largest bottleneck right now.

Everything should come tomorrow. So excited.

The 3570k is such a beast. I was on my macbook pro yesterday and I was getting pissed because it was starting to lag. Lag doesn't exist on my desktop

I'm surprised I can play any game on this Fujitsu I got, even if it's just Trine. Is there some benefit of having ram in both slots of a laptop besides more ram size? Like will it utilize it better in two slots instead of one somehow? It's just so cheap now I'm trying to find reasons to put more in it.


Doing valve cover gaskets on my van finally, what an *** job this is. And I already misplaced my 1/4" ratchet, damnit.

Short answer, yes.

Longer answer, having 2 x 2GB sticks will read/write faster than 1 x 4gb stick. Since your computer is able to read and write on two sticks rather than one, it's transferring more data faster.
