I think I'm going to chase down an X3360 mate, I had one before and it was a monster, I got it to 4.6GHz and 4.2 daily stable, it's the xeon version of the Q9550.

My opinion is that having 4 cores would benefit you but now may not be the right time to buy. Wait until mid year then see what has been introduced to the market that you may be interested in. Then you can go back and get a quad if nothing interests you.

That will not cut it tbh, E8400/E8600 probably but not something like that..

The 1156 Socket was a bit faster clock for clock and it has L3 cache so no surprise its a fair bit faster but many people are still on 775...

I am waiting on Bulldozer like everyone else
