ORINTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 @ 2.4 GHZ 8MB LS CACHE... is the GHZ that important??

well think about what the processor is. Duo means 2 and Quad means 4. So even if the quad's ghz is lower you need to think that is per processor. It can handle a lot more than the Duo.

its the newer version , the g92 is a diffrent core, the 640mb has g80 which is not as good, and some of the 8800GT are faster then the 640 gts , so nvidia remade the 8800 gts with the new G92 clock- and therefore is faster then the GT and the 640GTS
