Best solution AMW1011 a b à CPUs January 8, 2010 12:01:14 AM Share The 680i chipset was limited to 65nm quads if you want to overclock, some 45nm quads were possible without overclocking but I wouldn't try it. A Q6600, Q6700, or QX6800 are your only options. Related resources EVGA (NVIDIA) nForce 680i SLI - RAID 0 (2 sets) problems.

Bluescreendeath a b à CPUs January 8, 2010 12:56:34 AM Try ebay. $180 for a Q6600 on zipzoomfly is totally overpriced. You can get a Q6600 used for about $120 or less. diznanl January 8, 2010 1:27:53 AM hmmm ... will I see much of a difference between a Q6600 and an E6600 (OC'd to 3.15)? I have the E6600 in my box now and it runs great, but I wanted to be able to take advantage of my soon-to-be-made GPU purchase of a hd 4890 or 285 gtx Bluescreendeath a b à CPUs January 8, 2010 1:36:24 AM There won't be significant differences in games but applications will run faster if they use more than 2 cores. diznanl January 8, 2010 1:45:50 AM I think I'll stick with the e6600 until I go for the BIG upgrade ... i7 Thanks for the input, guys!
