Looking to upgrade my current E6600 on D975XBX to something with more crunching power for MS Flight Simulator gaming PC. The options avaiable according to Intel site are X6800 and Xeons 3040, 3050, 3060 and 3070. Questions from the noob. Would Xeon even be worth condiering, or would something like Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 BX80571E7600 - 3.06GHz, 3MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB be better than Xeon on a gaming PC with D975XBX? Wopuld E7600 even work, it is not listed on Intel site? What would be my best option considering price ceiling of about $300-$400 for the new CPU? Thanks a lot for your help.
