Eh, I'm happy with my c2d, if i ever NEED to upgrade, i will. These days I can barely game anyway with schoolwork and such. If I can play crysis fairly high I'm happy, maybe higher on 1440x900, and that's if I get a chance to play while juggling school and halo 3.

Lol I am so happy with my E6300 its ridiculous.

I paid 180 bucks for this last December and its still holding strong at 3.64ghz.

Even with a gimped 2mb cache it blows the majoirty of peoples C2D's away at gaming
