My budget is only $1000 CAD

So i7 won't work for me. Q9550 mite fit into my budget but its $200 more than a e8400 or Q6600 so I don't think its worth it.

Trust me you won't regret it. E8400 is BLAZING fast once you overclock to about 4.00ghz~ on air.
These words will attract Maroon very very soon..

I'd say jump on the e8400, if you can afford a q6700 or a q9550 I'd recommend those over an e8400 any day

check out the q9300 if you want a quad. it's only a little bit more but it is on average 5% faster than the q6600

And it probably does overclock better - although im not positive about that.

Its a FSB Wall because of the Low Multiplier.. I don't know what speed exactly though..

It'd be a perfectly fine chip if the multiplier was just a bit higher

i think intel did that so that it would compete with the q6600.
