Is Q6600 overkill for my needs?
I'm currently using a Q6600 at stock, and it is more than what i need at the moment,
i do light gaming, and have a spare e2180, and i think i might sell both and buy an e5200 as it runs cooler and sucks up less energy.
All i do is COD4 atlantica online, CSS, CS 1.6, and SC 2 when it comes out.
I use mainly for web browsing though.
For gaming i use 9800GTX+ which should handle most things.
Also for CPU cooler i have a TRUE on the way ( Thanks encorp! ) .
Way overkill :)
A quadcore is overkill for alot of users and just like them, its overkill for you as well.
Yeah sell both and buy a decent dual core 45nm. You wont see a difference in performance.
the new petium 5200 is like 100 $ ? You can easily get this by selling your cpu.
I would keep the Quad and just run with speedstep enabled and that will cut the power needs down. The Q6600 will have a longer lifespan of usefulness than any dual-core. Eventually it will be worth having a quad in a normal PC.
I'd get a nice dual core if I were you; that true will keep it super chilly.
I use quad cores because I multi task like a machine; I always prefer more tasking performance over higher clocks so I build my systems with high amounts of memory and as many (4) cores as I can. I like to be able to do whatever I want; all at once.
Run F@H then it wouldn't be overkill anymore.
If you really want to sell it, sell both then get a E7200 and overclock it to around 3.8Ghz. Most E7200 can hit 3.6Ghz with ease.
why not just keep the 6600,save some money ....are dual core intel's eg:5200,7200,even 8400 any better than Q6600..if not OC'n anything..
i thought quad would be better,or q6600 oc'd to 3ghz better than the duals listed above?
