Hi,

Can someone help me out with the difference between these two processors?

PROCESSOR 1

Part Number(s): MK927/ 0MK927 Processor, Server Enhanced, 3400, 1.8, For Dell DIMENSION C521/ Dimension E521
Category: Internal Parts And Assemblies
Sub Category: CPU/ Processors
Notes: Processor, Server Enhanced, 3400, 1.8, 256K, 1C, 62W, 2.5 Form Factor
Part Number MK927/ 0MK927 compatible with the following Dell Models:

DIMENSION C521, Dimension E521


PROCESSOR 2

Part Number(s): UP797/ 0UP797 1.90GHZ AMD Processor Athlon 64X2, 3600+, 1.9G, 1MBX2, Dual Core, 65WATT For Dell Computers
Category: Internal Parts And Assemblies
Sub Category: CPU/ Processors
CPU Speed: 1.90GHz
Notes: PRC, X2, 3600+, 1
Part Number UP797/ 0UP797 compatible with the following Dell Models:

Dimension E521, Inspiron 531 MT, Inspiron 531s, Inspiron 541 MT, OptiPlex 740, OptiPlex 740e, Vostro 201


I'm not sure what Server Enhanced means, which of these are actually better, and whether it's actually worth replacing processor 2 with processor 1.

Basically, I was given processor 1 and I'm wondering if it's worth my time to actually throw it in my computer. I surf the web, will typically have a lot of tabs open at once, will do some word processing, YouTube, iTunes, etc. Nothing big at all.

I have a Dell Dimension E521.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Mike

Those aren't AMD part numbers. The only place I find them is at Impact Computers which doesn't have a great reputation.

Those are both older, somewhat slower CPUs.

Processor 1 - http://www.impactcom....com/mk927.html
Processor 2 - http://www.impactcom....com/up797.html

Very little information, such as amount of L2 memory, but from what little info there is I'd say Processor 2 is definitely better. It is dual core. I would stay with Processor 2.
