yeah saving some electricity and money is a good thing. I'd do the same but I'm an a-hole and leave them running

@Redeemed. I can tell you that even clock for clock the Q9x50's are a little faster so the i7 is going to rock your world. Just make sure to oc the poor thing

And nice over clock. I'm praying my 920 can do about the same.

Though I gotta' ask... does your new processor seem noticably faster than the Q6600? Cause that's *essentially* what I'll be comming from. If so, how is your new cpu faster? Apps open up sooner? Game load times less? Etc... and sorry for the interrogation. Just kinda' wanting to know what to expect for myself.
I really can not give you a good answer on that. Because I've upgraded my memory, gpu, and cpu, I can't specifically say that my system is running much faster because of my CPU. games load a lot faster, and I'm able to turn AA up, and I'm McLoving it!
