Even my RAM should be faster, from 1000 MHz to 1300MHz, because of bigger FSB speed of CPU.
I would like to ask you all, if someone could tell me if its worth buying for games for me ??
For how long I wont get perforamnce issues ? At CPU Buyers guide I read it should be 3-4 years ?
Thanks to everybody for answers and advices
Have a nice holydays
Actually I forgot to ask ... if you amybe could recommend me some other cheaper CPU?
What do you say about :
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q8400
(4M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) (http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=38512)
Actually mosox is right, I didn't realize that the E8600 is actually more expensive than the Q9550! The Q9550 is far better value for money @ $275 than the E8600 @ $290. As far as moving to AMD is concerned, I think that's a bit extreme, but it's also an option.
When deciding on the best CPU for me, I like to use these comparison chart's as a guideline: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html
They're not 100% accurate, since they don't take the motherboard chipset into account, but they're great as a rough guideline.
Yep, I don't know why Intel doesn't want to drop the prices for the 775 socket. Heck, an i-5 760 is cheaper than some of those quads. I bet they will do the same for their newer platforms, two years from now the i-5 will still be $200.
LE: He doesn't need to change the RAM when buying a AM2+ mobo like the one above. That mobo is DDR2 and crossfire too.
