    my e8400 @ 3.6Ghz was good enough for my gaming and everyday computer usage. It was only slow on the times I use my PC to render 3d images via v-ray hence I upgraded. Other than that, it was smooth and trouble free..I OCed it to 3.6Ghz from day 1 and never had to play with BIOS settings since then.

    Jesus... I've got one comp on a Q6600 and another on a Q9300 - I was planning on keeping the Q9300 that is on my gaming rig and 8gigs of ram while just upgrading the PSU and graphics card for Crysis 2 when it comes out.

    But now I may just sell off everything on the gaming rig cept the processors.. switch them out with the other computer and rebuild everything... meh

    The Phenom II processors surpass the Core 2 series too well and for a much better price range. You can easily buy an AMD board with a Phenom II quad for the same price as a Core 2 Quad alone. The cheapest quad I've seen is the same price as the Phenom II 955 and the 955 will crush it. :D AMD has them beat in that aspect.

    I think it's a smart move for Intel to do this. It'll pressure AMD a bit more. My next build will probably be the Sandy Bridge dual cores that're coming out soon. :D I'm eager to see what those can do.
