Ok I have a dual core e8600 and a q9550. I mainly play games with a few applications running in the back ground on a dual nonitor setup. Im running vista 64 bit ultimate (hope to upgrade to win 7 soon) with 8 gigs ddr3 ram and a ati 4870x2 gpu.
Now for the question. Which do u think i should run with? I know most games dont use multi core etc and the few programs in the background are stuff like firefox , aim, ventrilo and maybe another 1 or 2 depending on what im doing.
Yeah figured what the hell prob about the same despit the bigger cache. Got the 3.33 oc'd to like 3.6 and prob will oc the 2.88 quad to like 3. I impulse bought the processor and now im like damn these are almost the same really lol
