E8400 or Q6600 D; - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Ok, thanks. I was really leaning towards the E8400 anyway, and this just solidifies my choice. I don't run VM's, and the computer will mostly be used for gaming, listening to music, watching videos, and minimal video encoding (so little that any benefit the quad might give wouldn't really be worth having a quad for that reason)

Thanks!

Yeah, def go for the E8400 then. This thing is a beast for a dual core anyway. I can't believe it's as cheap as it is.

Glad I could help!
