Just because you're not ready to upgrade there is no need to attack others who are, with dumb talk about e-penis.

The increases are compared to a stock clock not a 1GHz OC'ed Q6600. All benches so far show next to 0% increase in performance. We need to see how well i7 OC's before we can determine if its worth any thing compared to our over clocked rigs. For every one out there thats not capable of a decent OC then yea it will be worth it.
