Dear friends, i just bought a Intel quad q8400.
How is this chip in terms of gaming. I use it along with xfx nvidia geforce 9600 gt.
Will this suffice for today's upcoming games like crysis 2,mass effect3 etc.,etc.
please give me any links related to this if any comes to your mind.

Q8400 is good enough for gaming. just make sure you have one of the new generation GPU. ATI 5770 or 5850 is the best choice

A 9600GT isn't a powerful GPU. Crysis 2 or ME3 hasn't even come out yet so...

A 9600GT will play ME2 on high with lowered resolution, and Crysis 1 on medium-high with lowered resolutions.

I just upgarded my Pentium D to a Q8400 Core 2 Quad and I play a few games on rather high settings with it.I am not sure the exact settings in most games the only game I am sure I have maxed out atm is WoW. I play a lot of Battle Field Bad Company 2 thou and have never seen a spot of lag. I also have a XFX GTS250 with 1gig of on board mem. It's a good CPU for the money with a good amount of over clock abality and I am just starting to overclock. Hope this helped sorry for some bad spelling.

Can't disagree here though-
