Think you might be mistaken there. I had an E6300 @ 3.2ghz and it was bottlenecking my 3850/3870 crossfire setup in 3dmark06. Another 560mhz and 2mb cache REALLY helped out. Take a look at my scores, specifically the GPU scores of course.

As you can see, GPU performance increased an average of 20% with the extra CPU power, which is a pretty significant difference....and furthermore, an E6300 @ 3.2ghz is actually a bit faster than a X2 @ 3.45ghz in 3dmark06 as well....

3850/3870 CF + E6300 @ 3.2ghz
3DMark Score 14186 3DMarks
SM 2.0 Score 6327
SM 3.0 Score 7734
CPU Score 2711

3850/3870 CF + E6750 @ 3.76ghz
3DMark Score 17070 3DMarks
SM 2.0 Score 7813
SM 3.0 Score 8963
CPU Score 3324

i think the cache helps much more than the increase in clock speed.
your cpu score is indeed better than my 3.2ghz 5000...but not that huge of a difference.
if this link works, it shows an e6600 @ 3ghz giving only a 150 point cpu score advantage. of course, thats the problem with benchmarks....lol...it all depends who is on the business end of them. i would have gotten higher with an e6600, probably

Hmm, What score do you 'spose my soon to be built Wolfdale machine from my sig would get? Assuming the e8400 is overclocked to 3.6Ghz (or even higher if I end up being able to afford an aftermarket cooler)

High 13k -ish

But with that P35-DS3L you could easily hit 4.0ghz.. try to do that

Think maybe my 3600+ is bottlenecking my 8800GT? So when my e8400 shows up I might actually get a little more out of my gpu? (I noticed gurusan's post above..)

Alright, off topic, I'm STILL lagging terribly in Oblivion... I rarely play it anymore, but its become a personal goal of mine to smooth it out.. I heard that a slower CPU will cause periodic lagging due to all the background elements happening in the game, such as weather and whatnot, or is this just a rumor?

well considering how much goes on in that game.. i'm pretty sure it is pretty cpu intensive.. but it could also be ur 1.5gb or ram doing it, i think 2 could straighten it out abit along w/ ur new cpu
