    Thanks All, I thought I needed to clean out my hard drive and send most of my Music to the external hard drive!
    Thanks again!

    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. Thanks again,

    Originally Win XP, 2GB 500 HD, then in Dec. 09 I put Win 7 Prof, & additional 2GB ram, 2.4GHZ. Use it mailny for Music and Business Documents.
