One quick question guys, but not for me though. What should I get between the two performance-wise: e6300 vs e4500... or should I just wait for the debut of e4600 this October 21 and get that instead?
I use my PC mostly gaming and a little bit for video and audio editing on the side. I can get the e6300 for cheap (used/was overclocked and cheaper than the e4500s). My motherboard is an Asrock 4CoreDual-VSTA. I am at the moment using a Pentium D 925 at the same computer that I am currently upgrading on a tight budget.
I'm a moderate overclocker and sometimes(ok mostly) I don't at all. Thank you and more power to THG(my bible to the world of technology)!
It kinda depends what you want. Faster fsb or better overclocker. I have an E4400 and it has at 10x multiplier. The E6300 was my original choice at 1066fsb but I've read some good things about overclocking the E4xxx series. It would be interesting to see what people come up with for the E4600. Good Luck
Why do you have to wait a E4600? Just OC an E4300 or E4400!
E6300 is not worth it! Go for E6550 if you want it!
You still have D925. It is not that bad if you don' have much money! Care to wait a year or more and see what will Intel and AMD came up with?
