I'm upgrading from a core 2 duo e4500 2.2 gig to either an e8400 or a quad 8200, and I was curious which will actually be better for gaming. Also, will I really notice much of a difference from what I have now?
Eh, found it for $144, anyway. Was the lowest price I could find, and only $4 over the q8200 I found.
Did you already buy it? Do you live in the US?
If you haven't bought it yet, then here's a Q8300 @ 2.5GHz for $150 w/ free shipping & no taxes, only $6 more than the E8400. This will OC much better than the Q8200. If OCed, it will demolish the E8400.
