All of the information that i have personally read....points to the E8600 as being a far better cpu for GAMING....other than maybe GTA4....which I care nothing about anyway.
From what I have read it will OC to 4.0 Ghz on air with no problem.....I can't see that being a bottleneck for a GTX 260 SLI set up....but maybe I am wrong.
Anybody else care to comment....I would like to hear what a few more people think.
