Yes, exactly. In my personal opinion, the E6400 and E6700 aren't worth the extra money (at least not performance-wise). I'd only get them if my goal was to seriously overclock.
Sorry and im not trying to change the post subject here just a quick question for Meithan.....
Meithan im hopeing your a gamepleyer here. How well does your PC run games liek BF2142 and ES: Oblivion or whatever ? as my pc will be same processor and ram just a X1950Pro instead so i can just add on a few frames per second to get an idea.
I'm a gamer, even though I don't play as much as I used to. The games I have right now are: Battlefield 2, FEAR, Neverwinter Nights 2, Doom 3 and Heroes of Might and Magic V. I also have Half-Life 2 and other older games somewhere around, though not installed at the moment.
So what are my general framerate and quality settings?
I played through FEAR with every in-game setting on MAX at 1024x768. I get around 50fps on average. I tried 1280x768 on MAX and it's still playable (around 30fps), but it lags occasionally.
I run Battlefield on 1280x960 with everything on "High" and 4x antialiasing. I haven't checked the frame rate, but it's 100% playable (I've played BF2 for like 20 total hours.. I'm almost at Sargeant rank and have all basic badges and a few medals).
Neverwinter Nights 2 is certainly the heaviest game I have, because I can't run it well with everything on max at 1024x768. I leave some options off, like dynamic shadows and high quality lighting, but the rest is on high.
So I hope this gives you a general idea of how my 7600GT performs. Keep in mind that my system's weak point is the graphics card. With an X1950Pro, you'll get much better frame rates than me.
