I just wanna ask if what card is better for a gaming PC, the Xeon or the Core 2...I just wanna use the PC for gaming and i have no plans of making my PC into a server (anytime soon at least...)

I have the X3350 It is the same as the Q9450. Look at the benchmarks between the Q6600 and the Q8200. Then you will know what one is better. Just because it is a Xeon does not make it a better overclocker or faster then the Q2Q equivalent. 1Haplo m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
