Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel Core2 Q6600 CPU Review  - Intel Core2 Q6600 CPU Review
Tue, March 13 2007 | 3:48AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"From all the above results, the only reason to buy the Q6600 over the E6600 would be if you do a LOT of encoding, rendering etc etc. The performance boosts for compression/decompression, and encoding is unsurpassed. However, if you're a casual gamer looking to build a new gaming rig, then I'd have to recommend the E6600. Currently, there are simply too few games that fully take advantage of SMP. Even in games that fully support SMP (Rainbow 6: Vegas), you'll only see improvements of 10-15 fps, which in my mind, isn't worth the extra cost of a quad core chip. Thankfully, with the ability to overclock these processors so easily, you will be able to milk every last drop of performance from them. The raw power that these new CPU’s have to offer makes them the current crème de la crème. I would say my major concern about this processor would be the highly inaccurate temperature reporting that this CPU has."
