Thanks for the reply you guys, and for the welcome stalin90
Well Dakaggo, for question A
my answer is niet, I'm in the process of building a rig that will last me 5-6 years without touching it.
My current PC is 5 years old
So I'm trying to get the best performance/price ratio for a rig that will still be considered med/high-end in a couple years, after that I won't care what happens even if my rig drops to the very low Med-end range.
So you guys are saying that is better to invest in the QUAD cpu than this 45 nm tech and 2 more Mb of L2 cache?
It seems to me that, that's their major difference. Right?
So basically the ideal CPU would be QUAD proc with 6 mb(or more) cache and 45nm tech.... know any CPU under $250
that have all that?
