Core 2 Quad Q6600 to launch at just $531? - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Have to remember that there is a 40% price cut to happen on the 7th and a load of new CPU's for fillers in the C2D line.

Would it be worth it to upgrade from my OC C2D to a Q6600 and over clock it to 3.4

.... That quad sounds so good. It is why I purchase the cheapest Core2 for my build. Maybe I should wait for the 8 core, whenever she comes out...

the way intel is going not too long after they make a native quad core processor they will try to slap two of them on one processor and call it octo core.

Only you can answer that question. Do you feel your cpu is holding you back? I want to upgrade mines. But in honestly it would be stupid of me to do so right now because my cpu is working out great for what I do with it. Which of course is the main point.
