    I currently have a 3 year old computer, which was very nice when I bought it but obviously now it is a bit out of date and it struggles to run Photoshop and I don't even mention games to the 9800Pro.

    All I have on the 2.4Ghz P4 Chip (running at 3.2ghz) is a massive Thermalright heatsink that cost about £50 from OCUK and a 12db Papst fan. Anyhow - I like the fact it doesn't make much noise.

    So what CPU and heatsink can I include on my new system to run with the same fan?

    Thank you,

    Sam

    Another massive Thermalright heatsink (SL or SI 120)

    Can you not use your current Thermalright HSF on a new system?
    What HSF do you have now?

    I am not really worried about the heatsink I am worried about what CPU to buy, how many watts of heat are the current CPUs putting out?
