Processor upgrade question
A store nearby is selling the Q6600 for 2 benjamins. I currently have a E6300 that is overclocked to 2.6ghz. My MB is a Gigabyte GA-965p-DS3 revision 1.0, which is compatible with the quad, but would limit my overclock ability due to it being an early version. Still, from what I've read on on various forums I think I could get 3ghz out of it with my board.
So here's my question, will I get a significant performance increase by going to the quad, or should I just hold off for another six months or so? My current rig runs nice for most of the stuff I use it for, which is games and some audio stuff, but I've got upgrade-itis after seeing the quad for that price. Dang!
