Who cares, it's not like any programs are going to use Quad Core's for a long time.

By then, all of your other hardware will be outdated and you will have to upgrade anyway.

Nice.


A guy I know at a local PC store told me this was going to happen at the end of the mont, and he was right!

You're right about that.


But. With games and apps becoming multi-threaded now days, with Vista running background stuff all the time, having multiple cores is a big helper.

go look at some benchmarks

the quad still runs faster than any of the dual cores in 95% of programs

I'm 95% sure I won't order the q6600 from newegg. Newegg right now has to be one of the worst deals for the q6600, my strategy to go to frys and ask to look at the q6600 box first will ensure I get a g0 stepping. Unless they illegally switched processors product codes in which case I really can't do anything.
