I am looking to upgrade a few things in my PC mostly for gaming. I have an Intel Quad Q6600 CPU that I am unsure about keeping. I have to upgrade my Radeon 3870 and get a PCI express 2.0 supporting mobo anyway so I am wondering if I should upgrade my CPU in the process. I have heard that most games don't take advantage of quad core CPUs yet and that the performance level of CPUs nowadays isn't that relevant in terms of game performance. I do not know how much of this is true but I would like to find out. Should I upgrade my Q6600 to something newer or just stick with it? Thanks.

im asking myself the same question in my latest thread... you should check it, for some of the info might be of help to you...
well keep ur Q6600.... u will not benefit from going to I series, because games really don't use Quads right now ( exceptions r there though ). like GTA4 uses Quad core.....
