Okay. I hear you! Am seriously looking at the Quad now. Remind me never to leave you in charge of my wallet...

I wasn't aware that the stock cooling was effective on the quads so yes, that takes the cost of the T.Tower out of the build. That and the fact that I have a Microcenter 20mins away with their current $200 Quad offer (fingers crossed they are still in stock) means I may well be going the four core route without having to upset my $160 budget! Huzzah!

+ reps.

You should go with the Quad since you will be doing more than just gaming, games have shown that you can overcome small L2 cache by simply overclocking. However, L2 cache is irreplaceable in video and audio editing.

grab the E2180 i am a hardcore gamer i play all latest realeses my comp never drops below 60-70fps i can pull in 12000 3dmark06 score i also do quite a bit of video recoding it takes about 35mins to turn an AVI file into DVD format and i can safely say the 1mb cahce has NEVER been an issue.. with my OC most programs actually recognize my chip as an E6750 anyway temps are superb
24c idle 45c under load save your cash .... the E21xxs are the best bang for the buck avalible today IMO
