    Do you already own the mobo and gpu?
  4. yea why?
  5. The e8600 isn't a bad choice and is quite cheap, but if you can afford a q9650 or q9550 quad core then get one of those instead.
  6. maybe i will go with e8600
  7. What games are you planning on playing with it?
  8. Sims 3 with All expansion(include Stuff Pack)

    The Sims 3 is heavily single threaded - you will actually get better performance on TS3 with the dual core e8600 than the quad core q9650 because the e8600 has a higher clock speed (3.33ghz vs 3ghz) :)
