Once you go quad, why would you ever want to go back to dual? :P

3mb of more cache isn't that big deal for gaming, it costs like 1 FPS maybe.. plus the e7200 has a better (.5x higher multiplier and $80 cheaper)

It'll probably overclock better.. which is worth it over the 3mb more cache

its alot better if you consider the price/perf compared to the 8400. i would rather have a a q6600 any day then any dual core. they are pretty close in gaming performance but in certain areas quads shine. same price for 2 more cores

haha, so you think I should go q6600 instead?

I don't play many new games(Mostly older games) but I do a lot of photoshop/video editing/digital art?
