I'm not sure if this topic is appropiate for this forum but heres my question-
I am considering to buy a new computer from Dell. I have customized two computers which are almost exactly the same but the price difference is $310. Money is not an issue, but I would only buy the more expensive one if its actually worth it. One of the desktop is a dell dimension 8300 and the other is a 4600.
>The dimension 8300 (more expensive) has 2.8 ghz with 800 mhz front side bus and hyper threading technology. The dimension 4600 (cheaper) doesnt have hyper threading technology and only has 533 mhz fron side bus.
>Dimension 8300 (more expensive) has 512 dual channel ddr sdram at 400mhz. The Dimension 4600 (cheaper) has 512 dual channel ddr sdram at 333 mhz.
Does the difference affect internet gameplay ping on a 56k modem?
Similarities (not sure if I needed to say this but I will just in case)-
>3.5 floppy drive.
>48x CD-RW drive
>Dell Enhaced Multimedia Keyboard and Dell optical usb mouse
>19in monitors (18 in. viewable) flat crt
