Thanks again! m 0 l Santel May 11, 2010 2:37:01 AM Quote:No. If you can overclock your Q6600 to at least 3ghz, then there is no reason to upgrade. Definately not i3 since that's a dual core processor and you already have a quad. Considering you would need a new mobo, cpu and ram, it would not be a very smart upgrade imo. Not sure how to overclock or what overclock is , my ghz is 2.4. what is mobo? Initially it came with 2GB and I put an additional 2GB in, taking it to the Max of 4GB.
