Which one?!?

Intel Core(tm) 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz)


Intel® Core(tm) 2 Duo Processor E6850 (3.0GHZ)

they are both real fast and I saw some tests online that the E6850 actually outperformed this quad-core in multiple instances. I really don't OC processors anyway. So what do you guys think?

More about which
  1. Depends on the software you use.

    If your software can run on multiple cores, go with the quad. If you want it for today's games, go with the fast dual.
  2. basically for some research and and mostly games.
  3. For today's game you'll want the fast dual core. However, I am hoping that the coming generation of games will be multi-core. Supposedly the next Half Life episode will be.

    I think you should take a look around the forum, and search for similar topics. This topic has been posted 5 million times before.

    But for your question, Q6600. It will be much more future proof for gaming.
