Default Re: Worth selling my Q6600 for a E8400?

With a quad at 3.4Ghz, your bottleneck is all GPU for games. Someone had benched and proven that ~3.4Ghz on C2D was all that was needed. Anymore and games didnt take advantage.

What you will lose... all the UT3 based games that use the quad for physics. Quad or Duel? Quad all the way. Sure a few games might be faster with a 8400 @ 4.2 Ghz, but as games start taking advantage of 4 cores you will want a quad. Stick with what you have already.
