    Anyway... this review is infinitely more useful to me with the Q6600 info added in. I've got a few Q6600 machines and a Core i7 940 but since these machines do vastly different things and have very different hardware specs it was hard to really compare their performance. I'm also very happy that you compared the games with the CPU and Video card bottlenecks - makes it that much more useful.
    Like someone else said earlier I would've liked to see some simple video encoding apps included in there - specifically handbrake as it's used by so many people and very easy to install and get going.
