well a q6600 is more future proof than any amd dual core!

and... i've challenged dual cores to reach the limit.. back w/ my fx62.. and i tihnk i found it...and well, it did a heck of a lot of things at once.. but it bogged down when i got really intense

burning a DVD, torrenting, limewire, folding@home, aim, creative media source, photoshop, and illustrator running.. and well... it was taking some time to flip through applications

i get more luxury out of my quad... i'm definitely one that pushes the envelope.. i'm constantly doing a crapload of things at once.. and this quad core was a blessing

if a quad core is a blessing, then an octo core will be an orgasm.

when games come out that utilize more than one core fully you'll find the limit.

The only thing that matters for me is price/performance ratio. A rose by any other name is still a rose. Why would I pay the same money for a product that performs less just to have the right logo on it. This isn't like buying cars or clothes where other factors come into play. This is pure performance tech so I never understand fanboy-ism. I just can't conceive of it.
