Well, the thing is: He might not need to game, but if the intentions was to game aswell, I would agree then.

I agree, honsetly I am going build a PC next month with a core duo in mind. Frankly its exteremly marketable.

1. Its cool, you tell a customer heat is a computers worst enemy then tell him his CPU ise THE CLOSET ON THE MARKET=a big plus.
2. Tell him it beats out the best FX-62 at a 1/3 of the cost.
3. Tell him all the gaming freakers, and poeple who love fast, and wonderful CPUs are raving about it.
4. Tell him that certain editions of the CPU have cut ajob which once took 4 hours into 1.

If your going gaming i'd of gone with a 7600, atm is my new plociy to not toss anything less in a gaming rig.

I felt it was time to upgrade my 478 P4 2.4GHz.

My plan was originally to go with a BFG 7900GT but OCUK stopped stocking them and the GS put me off. I saw a super bargain for a 6800 so I took it.
