I don't exactly see how I flamed or insulted anyone?
Stating the obvious?

Well Gabb it all depend if you really need/want a Quad-core I was once myself in the same situation until a friend of my older brother convince myself that the Q6600 isn't worth it even if that is true that CPU is a good choice but it all comes to what you really going to be doing in your PC I really not going to use the Quad-core right now, but trust me on this one if a times comes when Quad-core is a "must standard" for gaming and everything else you can bet that there will be plenty of quad to choose from, for now let them be, but thats just imo.

Well said, imo i also believe the quad is not worth the extra money as many applications may not even use 2 cores let alone 4. And the o/c is being said to be unbelievable on the e6750.

Buy either of those CPU's. They will both be more then enough to handle anything for the next few years.

I'm so tired of reading the word, "Overclocking".

I bet most of you don't even overclock or even know how. And if you do know how, you have nothing but problems. I bet most of you don't even have an overclocked PC right now....

Pathetic.
Come on now, Havoc, Tech-Forums is home of some of the smartest children on the planet when it comes to computers. These kids are so gosh darn smart!
