FAQ: should I get a dual core or quad core? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
If games are starting to support multiple core processors now (Alan Wake and Crysis supporting Q6600), and you are planning on upgrading your cpu anyway, then it only seems logical to buy a Q6600 in July when the price drops take effect.

I'm simply blown away to think that a Q6600 will be selling for only $46 more than what I paid for my E6400 in January!

This is true. I like to remain positive--when word spread about the AMD price drop, prices were dead-on. I hope the same trend will follow.

Wait until July22nd and get quad core. Or dual core if your not going to be extreme multitasking. Q6600 should be around $266 on july 22nd, E6600 should be about $170, its worth the wait IMO. Wish i would have waited Payed $223.00 off newegg about a month ago, and coulda used my P4 for a month and saved money, or just got the Q
Meh.
