I just think that clocking one of those E8400's to over 4GHz would result in better performance in games! ... i reckon for me a Q6600 is just ovekill .... i just dont need a 4 core cpu i wouldent say! ... by the time that a 4 core cpu is needed there would be a better one out for cheaper!
Not sure what to do ......
If you have the money to burn why not. I just switched from a Q6600 @3.4GHZ to the E8400. I have yet to overclock it. I am happy with the switch.
