So while we all wait for the new charts, maybe someone can tell me what CPU I should by.
My case: I have E6400, 2GB ram and Geforce 8800GTX, 24'' screen. I thought of upgrading to either E8400 or Q9450.
I use my machine primarily to hardware intensive games like crysis.
Based on my graphicscard and my native games resolution of 1920x1200, would it be ideal to upgrade to one of the above CPU's?
Would it bring me more frames pr. second?
If yes, which CPU to choose?
The CPU would help the lower FPS a lot and the E8400 would bring the most benefit to you for now due to higher stock clock speeds and OC ability. But Crysis is supposed to be a multithreaded game so there might be a time when they update it to utilize 4 cores better and that will be when a quad might have a bit better hand in the game.
