I'm upgrading to a pentium d running at 3GHz. I would like to hear from people running or have used a pentium d. Please help

The answer is definitely YES!:) I am running a 2.8 GHz Pentium D LGA 775 with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit and have been for the past 3 years. The install only took 3 hours but, Win 7 spent the next few days after I installed updating to accommodate it fully. That was when I was running 2 GB DDR2 PC2-4200 I now currently run 4 GB (3.50 GB useable) DDR2 PC2-5300 6700 MHz. It runs smooth and it is not too slow. The speed my PC runs at is respectable but I am looking to replace the 2.8 GHz D with a 3.2. Then my system would really honestly be maxed out. Unless I want to switch to the 64bit disk that came in box with 32 bit. Then it would recognize and possibly use all 4 GB of RAM.

Windows 7 on a Pentium M?
I have an older laptop with Pentium M 1.6 GHz, 1GB RAM, an Intel graphics card on the mobo. I am having trouble sharing files with a box with 64 bit Windows 7. Someone said it's better to have the same OS. Is it possible to run 32 bit Win 7 on the oldie (of course, with Aero off)? Thanks!
