That would be a very nice upgrade. I'd say go for it if you have the cash.

Go for it... i would. The E6600 beats the 3500+ by a long way. And good thinking for waiting for the 8800GTX

it's a very good upgrade... I would do the same thing if I had the money, but I would honestly wait to see what the holiday buying season is going to look like. The 88 series is going to be very expensive... and I have read rumors about a xmas pricing war between the 2 giants again... so who knows.. you might be able to score as an xmas gift to yourself.

It wouldn't be nearly as powerful as the E6600 upgrade, but it is still an upgrade nonetheless.

the e6600 would be like an AMD X2 9600 when OC'd to 3.8ish.
