SSE4 really make a difference?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

While debating on a CPUs for a build, it's between the Q6600 and a Q9300, I began to wonder about how much SSE4 will actually affect future performance. While the Q6600 is easier to deal with, will clock higher and is cheaper, will it lose any significant ground when SSE4 apps become widespread?

Might have to go soon but will Rep when i'm back. Thx for the input.

SSE4 is a pretty big boost for things that can take good advantage of it (mostly some kinds of encoding), but I don't see it helping games or the like very much.
