Bro, I appreciate your quick response Are you a gamer and telling me this based from your experience with these awesome dual cores or are you telling me this based on reviews?

Will somebody be kind enough to tell sotorious and myself your thoughts about these new dual cores while gaming?

I've read the reviews but it would also be cool to here specifically from the guys on this site. I only use my rig for autocad, photoshop, and lots of gaming. At the end of the day, I just want to make sure I invest in hardware that can handle the business
My advice to you my friend is stick with Q9400 they are simple amazing.

Clarkdale series is a great cpu and is the most powerful dual core around.

The only clarkdale CPU's @ stock that are on par with a Q9400 @ stock in multi-threaded applications and games are Core i5 6** series due to there high clock speed of 3.20 - 3.46GHz IMO that is just amazing for a dual core.

When it come to single threaded applications the clarkdale series will beat a Q9400 hands down.

On another note the clarkdale cpu's are mental overclocker reported overclockes of 4.2+GHz on stock cooler make of that what you will.

Hope this helps

The reason I'm asking is because I'm currently building a new P55 rig and was originally going to buy an i5 750 for $200. I'm the type of individual who takes time upgrading simply because I believe in squeezing out all you can with hardware (some of this new stuff can be overkill depending on how you use your rig). I can get an i5 650 for $140, brand new, factory sealed from my buddy. From what I was reading, the i5 650 is somewhat equivalent to the Q9400 without OC'ing except when it comes to multi-threaded apps but that's what OC'ing is for...right?

Anyway, do you think it would be a nice moderate upgrade with this P55 (got the MSI P55 GD80 for $180 after rebate & remember I can get an i5 650 for $140) build and just sell my 790i & Q9400? I have no problem buying the i5 750 but like I had stated earlier, if the i5 650 can handle the business, I can always use that $60 towards the gpu or ddr3 memory. What do you think?

Right.

I think that either i3 530 or i5 750 are your 2 choices. I know stew has purchased an i5 dualie but they are pointless in my opinion, you might as well grab the i3 for a much lower price. The 750 has it's quirks, being a Quad, it will take a strong lead in multithreaded apps, and will be much faster clock for clock than your 45nm Yorkfield

In my opinion. Get a i3 530, get 4gb of good DDR3, and a good H55 or P55 board. It will be worth it, heck I am coming from a Q9550.

Core i5 650 isn't pointless

The comparision is some like below

Core i5 650 is like the Audi A4
Core i3 530 is like the Volkwagen Passat

See the Audi A4 has all the flair and high price tag
even tho the Volkwagen Passat has the basic's but same engine power & lower price

Do you like my comparism

lol

What was the improvement you had discovered moving from the Q9550? Is it the fact of having basically equal performance (w/exception to multi-thread apps) when you OC the dualie along with the newer hardware or based on the usage of your rig, you are actually experiencing overall improvement?

It isn't here yet mate, but will let you know Tues/Wed.

Swiftes is yet to get his Intel Core i3 530 but it should be with him on Tuesday

He won't yield the same performance as his Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 but he'll have alot more fun overclocking the pants off it.

All I would say is a Intel Core i3 530 @ 4.8GHz is simply amazing and will be on par with alot of Intel Core 2 Quad's and AMD Phenom 2 Quad's and it will be so great in games because the game can take advantage of the extra clock speeds

-----

Another thing to note is that i'm upgrading &/or side stepping from a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz to a Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHz

-----

It up to you mate

If you enjoy overclocking then upgrade
