A sin's a sin. It's not the content of the usage, but the fact its been used.

Hey that's not bad at all! Good to see something coming so close to the E8400, even beating it in games! I may be Intel but I used to swear by AMD back in the days of the 939-socket 4400+

I agree completely...I'm getting quite tired of seeing the word, it's negative and doesn't really lend much to credibility when you use it.

As for the benchmarks, it's a 2.4ghz Phenom up against a 3.0ghz 45nm Core2. Of course it's going to lose in certain benchmarks. Especially when those benchmarks aren't especially multithreaded.

Indeed. I guess the same goes to you and many others then.

In anycase I am now on a crackdown on that annoying little word.

Lets use more than 1% of our brains shall we.

Im confuzzled, shouldnt 3 cores > 2 cores even at a lower speed, however this aint the case and the phenom was only a small amount ahead in a smaller amount of area's. I dont get the good and oh go AMD comments sorry.

It's been 199 on Fry's for the longest time, and for a span of time was 179, and this is the Retail version.

I am by no means a fanboy either, I've had my fair share of AMD rigs, but I call it like I see it.
It doesn't matter man... the only games the E8400 can beat the 8750 in are games that would be playable on both processors.

AMD pulls ahead in benchmarks where its needed, like Crysis, and Supreme Commander. and it will only get better as more and more games become multi-threaded

Really, who cares if games like Half-Life 2 get 50 more FPS on the E8400? both procs are going to give you at LEAST 30 fps no matter what.

It should not be ''Well as it does not OC well then why bother''...if it is then I think you need to re-organise your thought process.

I would reccomend opening task manager and closing the process ''IntelFanboy.exe''

I agree with the sentiment: 99% of users do not overclock. probably 70% are upgrading from a 423 Pentium 4 or earlier. They've had their computers this long, their likely planning to keep their next purchases just as long, if not longer.. EITHER processor is a strong choice, so hopefully they can read threads like this and ask themselves what aspects of usage are more important to them

I don't get it, why are you getting so pissy when someone says that intel might have the better product right now? I don't get it, I see you make a valid point and others concede to the valid point but when others make a valid point you say it's intel fanboys?

Yes, it does seem that at stock the 8750 is a competent choice for games but the Q6600 is also in the same price range and should be better at not just games but all the other apps that the phenom did not do so well in. There's no much room to argue with that without resorting to namecalling and other unbecoming behavior.
