Mainstream Quad-Core CPU Performance Comparison

Quote:
Looking back, quad-core processors have had quite the run already. Intel's first quad-core CPU, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 was released almost three years ago, with the much more popular Q6600 following up months later at a rather steep $850. As you may recall it was quite the luxury then to have one of these at your disposal.

Very interesting read, thanks.

I'm seriously tempted to think about an i750 upgrade next Spring.
If I started saving now and the prices drop a bit....

But then I'd need to start thinking about a new GPU so I could enjoy the benefit in games...

Thinking about it I'm beginning to find my case a bit unattractive.

It's a strange addiction but, even though what I have and what I do with it now it's like getting a Ferrari to drive to the corner shop, I just can't help it.
