Default Re: Is it worth it?

TBH, I would go with one of the 45nm quads. Sure, they will have a lower multiplier, but they will also have a higher FSB wall.

The Q8400 which has an 8x multi, performs as good as or better than the Q6600 whilst using less power and overclocking just as well. That would be my choice.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
