And yes, for $700, 15% is measly. You could go for a Q6700 for $550, but you are negating that 15% gain, and yet it still costs $270 more. So anyway you figure it, at this point a quad is a waste of money for games.

If you do encoding, etc, then is of course a different story.



My 3+Ghz quad cost FAR far less then 1000 dollars ! Are you for real!?!!!!?

I'm guessing sillyeagle was refering on the extreme edition which I believe is always $999. You don't need one to archieve certain O/C goals but I guess it helps to have an unlocked multiplicator.
