CPU Comparison

I have my eyes on an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Now I am wondering what kind of a boost to performance would I receive in gaming terms? My specs are below..

95% of all games will play fine. Besides, you could try running some benchmarks to see where your rig stands.

I built a personal test rig for myself recently. The Q8400 is what i used.

You will not see huge performance gains from your current CPU, you would have to go to an i7 to see real performance gains from where you are.

That said the Q8400 is a GREAT CPU. I have used the Q8200 and the 8400 is much better. It's *almost* as good as it's big bother the 9400. If you're looking for an upgrade without a new board and RAM, the Q8400 is what I would get too.

I too don't think that the improvement would be drastic.

I've just gone from an E8200 to a Q9550 and there was quite a bit of a performance increase, especially in GTA 4.

If you mean C2Q Q6600, it one of the best 65 nm chips. It's getting to be old technology now however. I would go 45 nm.

So you say that 45nm chips are better than 65nm chip?

So which 45nm chip processor you recommend?
