DP 1.6-2.3 Air Cooled 2.5-2.7 Delphi LCS. (2004-early 2005)
DP 2.7 Panasonic LCS (Few Mid 2005)
DC 2.0-2.3 Air Cooled 4X2.5 Quad Panasonic LCS (late 2005)
Identify your LCS. Panasonic even after 5+years a flawless LCS with no issues, maybe a few leaker's but hey, nothing perfect in mass production, hence warranty.
In conclusion 2.7 boosted may cut the mustard, memory and video still sickly expensive but depending your original investment and budget, the 2.5 is still usable, if a delphi LCS and not fully leaking by now should run for quite a bit yet.
Punch will come from the DC Quad you should be darn near close to 1.1 Pro with that less the everso popular intel chip, love mine arctic silver ceramique flavored :-D
Any how I have a DC Quad and will keep it for ever, a bench mark in apples acceleration beyond all!
