Wait... or get a Q6600 ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Title says it all... I want to go to microcenter for that $200 Q6600, which is very attractive... Should I wait for better cpus upcoming or get it NOW! lol
Thanks in advance.

Also, how well is the gigabyte P35-DS3L with the Quad 6600 in terms of OCing?

What will you use it for? If you're gaming either you can get an E8400 or the E8500s should be out this month.
If you do any apps that would benefit from Quad core get the Q6600

If you don't plan to upgrade quite often Q6600 is the way to go.

If you like to game and fold at the same time, then I would get a Q6600. Like linskingdom said, the Q6600 is the way to go if you don't want to upgrade often.

Q6600 will last for a while.
Try for a G0, you can overclock that with better temperatures.
If my P4 can last till now, I'm sure that Q6600 can do the same, or better.
And depends on what you do anyway.

if you decide to go Q6600, then make sure you get a G0, don't settle for a b3. I bought my Q6600 immediately at the 22 price drop and i got a B3. Like two weeks later they started shipping G0's...the difference is more then noticeable.
