So many processor - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Gamer = E8500, Gamer but too poor to afford better CPU in the future, then Q6600. but really if u choose performance to price ratio, its the Q6600 for 200$ at microcenter, 60-80 more can get u a Q6700

Just out of curiosity, what is your current system getting in 3DMark06?

I can only benchmark 3D mark 06 @ 4.41Ghz and my score is around high 8000 and low 9000. If you click on my system it will tell you

I'm still havn't not got a qlue on what processor i want HELP!

I'm kinda going to stick with the Quads so it's between

Q6600 2400Mhz (£135) vs. Q6700 2660Mhz (£170)
post #17 of 22
if you can practically utilize all the cores in a quad or expect the have the processor for quite a long time (2-3+ years), the q66 or q67 would get my recommendation the end choice is whether you want a x9 or x10 multi.

otherwise the e8400 or e8500 would be a good fit, as most stuff just isn't coded to properly handle two cores let alone four. and an average user (not your average OCN'er) is hard pressed to load up even a dual-core.

another thing to consider is that the e8400/e8500's are clocking crazy high lately if you're a fan of high-OC, but the quad's tend to bench higher, which the new futuremark Vantage benefits from, so they're a good choice if you're a big bencher.

ah, that changes things a bit then.
just answer this then: is the bump from 9x multi to a 10x multi worth the extra £35 to you?

I don't know i only want my quad to reach 2800mhz or 3000mhz i will be happy with that.

But i hear that the P5N-E doesn't clock quads past 3000mhz but thats fine with me.

Will i achieve 2900 or 3000mhz with the Q6600?

hmm, a 650i chipset isn't very a quad-friendly chipset i'm afraid. unless of course, recent BIOS updates have changed it.
you might be pretty hard-pressed to get it the 3ghz on it.

if you do go with a quad + 650i, we have a rather comprehensive Asus p5n-e SLI 650i thread that may be of great use as i don't have much experience with that line of nforce chipsets.
