Even though it seems that you are only using your comp for gaming, But it seems like you keep your comp around for awhile before considering upgrades, So, I'd say Q6600 FTW

I say Q6700 better than Q6600 and soon will be in the same price range as the Q6600.

if you like to game more than anything else, and have no programs that utilize the quad core, go with the e8400. If you will actually use all that power, go with the q6600. The e8400 is faster in games and everyday stuff. Neither is better, they are both great, it is all about what you use your computer for.

you do not believe it? take that up with intel, when they said they were going to, and they dont... they will have a lot of very unhappy people. Yes you will notice a huge diff

and so what if he doesn't upgrade for a while. I still vote e8400 unless he does work with big programs that really need it.

But whatever you want DOOM is good. If you think the price drop is fake, go ahead, buy a q6600 now.
