Intel After an 18-page in-depth review of Intel's new processor line, The Tech Report concludes: "After years of wandering in the wilderness, Intel has recaptured the desktop CPU performance title in dramatic fashion. Both the Core 2 Extreme X6800 and the Core 2 Duo E6700 easily outperform the Athlon 64 FX-62 across a range of applications - and the E6600 is right in the hunt, as well. Not only that, but the Core 2 processors showed no real weaknesses in our performance tests."

its really not. I always thought it best to do large speed jumps. like right now I'm still using a p3-600/512k , I plan on upgrading to a quad core next year.

The speed difference WILL be worth the money ;)

Yeah, I'm on an XP 2800+ (which was a 2600 until I sent it back to AMD for an RMA and they sent back the 2800+... I love free upgrades).
I've got 1.5gb of RAM and a Geforce 6800.

I would love to have a dualo core system, but not for the price I would have to pay. I would need new mobo, new RAM (For DDR2), new proc, and a new video card (mine is AGP)... and for what?

You've definately got me beat with the P3 though...
