Good. I will look in to that OEM thing. Just trying to decide between E8 or a E6.

E2180 all the way.. !!!!!!!!!!

this thing flies ..

there is no rig out there regardless of H/W that will seem quicker in real time only benches will see a change
gaming is flawless COD4, COH, bioshock all maxed ...0 lag & a 1mb cache
12.000 3d mark
19sec superPI

progams & web pages are instant ...i know vista and an 8800 help but at the heart is this little monster firing on both cylinders 24/7 ..they are superb

Ah, very good idea for 3d rendering--the added cache would be a benefit. E8xxx is what I'd recommend--plus, they OC like beasts!

True, but he's doing 3D Rendering. I think he'd be better off with a chip that has more than a 1MB L2 cache.

And as far as no rig being out there regardless of H/W that will seem quicker in real time, well.... there's my rig. Take a Virus Scan for example: much faster. Or just everything in general: it feels a lot quicker, more responsive!

I do a little bit of Modeling and Animation, I do a lot of mapping for Source games, I use large PhotoShop files on a regular basis, etc. I just really don't want it to take a long time to render the models or the BSP's...

I say spend a small amount over your 200$ budget and go for the e8400...it's stocked at 3ghz (i think?) and comes with a good amount of cache. They overclock like a beast, but in my opinion if you aren't doing anything TOO intense in the 3d rendering department you should be fine at 3ghz. So without overclocking then you would be fine with the stock cooler, hence no added cost an a killer 45nm chip.

Or if you could find the Q6600 for 180$ like i got mine, then i'd go for that since 4 cores would be nice for you rendering and what not.

Still i'd have to say go for the 8400, that 3ghz clock should probably save you from overclocking, and if you wanted to you could save up for a tuniq or something and get it a little later.

just my 2 cents, hope it helps.

EDIT:
E8400 IF your motherboard can support 45nm through bios update or something.

just get a q6600, $219, and just keep the stock hsf. for the stuff you do, quad will make a HUGE difference.
