2. Is the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 965 Dual-Core CPU w/HT Technology 3.73GHz 1066FSB 2x2MB Cache EM64T still a good processor??? Compared to a Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 CPU @ 2.4GHz 1066FSB 2x2MB L2 Cache is the Extreme Edition a better choice??? I ask because a lot of gaming rigs I see have the 965, and Intel says it is great for gaming
Go for the core 2 duo everytime!

Even the most basic model (the e6300) can be overclocked to be as powerful as the high range AMD chips, and the higher-end 1s are insane, I personally have an e6600 and I tell you it flies, it really is something.
