I have been using my AMD X2 3800+ CPU for quite some time, so I decided to upgrade to a new system for Christmas. Since I usually launch many programs at once, I am planning to get a Q6600 system to take advantage of its quad core CPU. I have done some comparison shopping online and found out a great deal offered by BestBuy.ca:
The computer is mostly for office work, heavy duty web browsing (with 15+ IE and/or FF launched), video editing, working with photoshop. Not a gamer, yet, waiting for StarCraft 2. I do plan to purchase a decent video card on eBay once SC2's out, which, I doubt will be anytime soon.
I can live with on-board video card for now, no problem. My only concern is overclocking the system. Just want to make sure if I can overclock that system, just a bit, easily.
