And here I thought I was the cats meow for changing the processor in my system from an E8400 to a QX9770.

It's still a substantial upgrade for that socket

the difference in badly threaded apps doesn't make up for the cost however.

The cpu's full potential is only available in programs that can use more than one or two cores.

Trying to keep up with computer components to be on the latest and greatest is almost a fools errand. Not to mention, there does come a point for every person where faster really isn't that beneficial to them anymore. In fact, do you honestly feel a significant boost across the board going from the E8400 to a QX9770? (I'm not talking benchmarks...just real everday use?).

I`m going to say yes to the significant boost across the board, although it is based on seat of the pants feel rather than benchmark tests. I`ve been using 3 GHz processors, 2 single core and 1 duo core 2, for more than 5 years but this one feels different. The whole machine is snappier and runs smoother with more programs and apps open at the same time. Could just be the placebo effect from getting new hardware but I don`t think so. This opinion is based on SWAG.

Its the real world experience that I was after anyway. It's good to see you felt a significant performance boost. I've seen people who upgrade and find that they really don't see a difference...or one that isn't as big as what they were expecting.

Looks really interesting for multy-core applications, like video editing and transcoding.
Otherwise, an i5 dual-core with Turbo-Boost will handle most of the tasks needed.
