Yes I want a quad.
I got a E6420(4 mo cache L2)@ 3.2Ghz right now and I know the E8400 is a nice CPU, able to reach a 4.0GHz OC. I'm upgrading for the long run...I'll probably keep that rig for a long time...I just got lucky to get the un-expected $$$ to upgrade. I'm mostly a gamer and I know gaming is Dual-core territory right now...only hoping more multithreaded games will come out and make me appreciate the Quad in the long run.
I guess a quad might be good to take care of the Xfire/GSC voice chat/background tasks while I play, go through virus scans faster, and maybe encode/rid DVDs (safety backups of my OWN DVDs) faster.
