Depending on temperatures, it can run at anywhere between 3.3 and 4.0 Ghz. Personally, I'd go for the cheapest Core 2 Duo and OC that one, because the 805 uses a lot of power on full load especially when OCed (like, 150+ watt) and you'll earn the difference back within time for the next computer.

im not looking to overclock it, the pentium d is dual core, i just need it for now, i can do almost everything i want with the computer i am on now,(dell inspiron 2.8 ghz pentium 4)  so if i have 2 of these with more memory i will be straight until the upgrade of 4 gig memory and a 4 ghz core 2 duo because i dont need to really update this computer it gonna be stricty a music computer, all my software is older cause thats what im good with,
