  1. Hi all,

    I am thinking about changing my cpu from a Intel Core 2 6700 to a Core 2 quad Q6600.

    How much more performance would there be - if any ! or should i be looking at a diff cpu to upgrade to ?

    Many thanks

    Do you feel that the E6700 is limiting you to any degree? Whether or not you would notice a performance increase depends heavily on what you do with your PC. Perhaps you can use this site to get a general idea of what you can expect by upgrading as they allow you to compare the E6700 to the Q6600 with various benchmarks.

    Personally, don't believe that you would see a significant enough performance increase by upgrading to a Q6600 that justifies spending an additional $250.

    Many thanks for the reply.
    The E6700 is not bad at all, the web site shows a slight improvement.
    I may have to save up and go for a more powerful cpu !!

    Thanks again
