    I would recommend getting the Cedar Mill core. The Prescott is honestly a mini nuclear reactor (Prescotts are infamous for heating up A LOT). You'd be much better off with a Cedar Mill if you need a Pentium 4.

    However, Pentium 4's are old technology now. If this wasn't a business build, I'd wholeheartedly recommend a Core 2 Duo.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I've been told there is no need for a core2 duo in this build because of the power use.
