The SuperPi results are certainly interesting to take note of. For those of you who want to upgrade slowly, a P965 Express based motherboard like the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 with a standard Pentium D processor won't have much impact. But if you slap in a Core 2 Duo E6600 like PCSTATS has used here then you're bound to see a significant drop in the time it takes to complete this benchmark. AMD is left in the dust in this test... and the Pentium D rounds out things with the longest of all times. In SuperPi, lower times are best.
