Just signed up on these forums, specifically to ask this question. >_> I used the search and I didn't find any thread concerning my topic, so forgive me if this is an old subject.
I'm building a new rig soon, and due to Intel's coming price drop, I'm wondering if I should go quad. I had my eyes set on the e6600, but when I found out abouthe price drop, I started thinking about the q6600 or the qx6700. I'm a gamer, and from what I've read, core 2 duos handle gaming better so far. Is that completely true? Will a quad provide slower game play than a duo? Which one should I go with for the new rig?
