I don't understand the E8400 hype. I mean I get its the first affordable 45nm and all, but the Q6600 makes it obsolete. Both overclocked they have the same performance, 'cept one will last you a few years longer. Why go with the shorter lasting one, when they cost about the same? (Q6600 @ $199 would actually be cheaper) Higher clock speeds? Yay? Ehh I don't know, at this point it seems like a bad choice and people make it just to say "I have a 45nm @ 4.5 ghz" while they're really only ripping themselves off.

Dont listen to me though, i'm just babbling about stuff thats been argued over for the last few months lol

edit: unless I haven't been up to date and the e8400 does actually perform better...

you forget that it also produces less heat, so it is more easily overclocked without any extreme measures on cooling.

You think people don't listen to what you say??

If I posted as much as I could without caring if people actualy read what I said then I would have 20K posts.

But repeating ones self does get annoying.

i'll do it for you

Get the e8400 if you plan to upgrade processor in the next year then get it, but i really don't see the point since you would probably upgrade to a quad and the next revolutionary quad would require intels next socket

the q6600 is a great multitasker and at $199 @ microcenter its the best deal
it will last your computer longer than the e8400

i really don't see the point in buying an e8400 just for the small benefit in gaming ATM, when a quad would pwn in just a couple years
