I am a robot from the future in an age where technology has regressed and I am being powered by an AMD Sempron 2200+ tragically running Windows ME and the hopes of the people of my age to convey an important message. The message is over 4GB in size.
Currently sporting old school Athlon II for my PC, i5 would be a marvelous upgrade, and along with it i might switch up my mobo and add some memory...hell new graphics would be nice too. It would be a chance to revamp my pc from scratch :)
If I won? Well I would build a simply dubious and positively delicious Media PC that would credit and compliment our new LCD, a Media PC that adds to the sharpness and total envy-ness of this Full HD 32inch LCD TV, Ofcourse this would also benefit from the i5 for gaming purposes when the wife wasn't looking :p
The Intel Core i5 would suit myself and my family as we are starting a new business and any way to reduce overheads would go along way to giving us the push start we need to get the project management business off the ground. The bank already is uncertain of a business loan in the current environment so the Intel Core i5 would help to no end. The processing power would be suffice to run the design programmes I need and possibly serve as a server for the other computers I need. I wish everybody luck though. Its an amazing prize.
an Intel Core i5?would be the perfect brain for a new HTPC build that has been on the horizone for some time.? The current workhorse (a single core 3.2ghz P4) just falls short of 1080p and high-bitrate 720p video decoding and would love to be retired to the parents.
My ideal HTPC would include 2x DVB-S tuner, 1xDVB-T dual tuner, 1x DVB-S/T/Analog FM tuner and Bluray. The system needs to stream audio and video to other HTPC's in the house. It also needs to be able to cope with internet radio and TV. The i5-750 will handle all this and would as close to the ultimate HTPC there could be.
With the first opportunity in my life to finally purchase a home, the thought of making plans to build a small Home Theatre System has been floating around in the back of my mind for months now.
If the property is large enough, I will convert the attached Garage into an Information Super Highway for Entertainment and Media. Using the Intel Core i5 as the main control center for HDTV broadcasts and integrated surround system within a sound proof room, will add to the new and quiet empty space needed for online challenges. Adding in a self built bay window for Early Morning News and Gaming, will ensure I do not loose touch with the real world or the virtual one.
Perhaps, I'll even do two Sharp 65" Displays budget permitting, :) :) just to ensure there is enough real-estate for both.
Then the final add-on to complete the system build would be an Nvidia Tesla C1060 or ATI Firestream 9250 to have the system helping the world as a mini supercomputer, building, folding, processing, and searching.
It's only a dream I have for my own personal space, but making it a reality will up my up and coming geekness!
I will be using this proccessor to build new zealands first super hydron collider. I will then point the collider at canberra and demand that they share thier minerals with us. I will also use any spare capacity to pawn noobs in battifled bad company.

One of the features, a 4-way multi-task processing that allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking. I am always muti tasking on my home computer and it really slows it down. It would be nice to be able to be on a couple tasks that I have to do and not have my computer freeze up on me. The Graphics (from me doing research on it) seems to be the best when watching movies and things. Who doesn't or wouldn't want a better computer with the best picture? The fact that it automatically speeds up performance when you need it most is just one of the other great things about this. That is what it is all about isn't it? Great picture, being able to muti task and speeds up performance when you need it..Who could say no to a chance to win something so great that could really help someone out....
Well If I won on of the processors, it would give my parents the incentive to purchase a new computer or parts for one and give me the chance to put one together. It would be an extreme step up from the old HP Desktop they bought back in 2000-2001. Runs with 1.2GHz and I'm pretty sure (from memory) it has Memory less than or equal to one GB. Which is plain not efficient enough!
