yes it is...that's why we have been telling everyone to not buy the Quad-Core at that price right now.

thats about $330 USD which is around the price of the E6700 right now. That is a very good price for a Quad-Core at 2.4ghz each core.

I'd say to try to keep your CPU & GPU at the same levels.

Q6600 with at least 1 8800GTX if not 2 or the coming soon 8900GTX or 8950's.
e6600 with the 8800GTS 320 or 640's.
