This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80570E8400
When you look at the current price of, say, the E6850 or the Q6600 and then look at the price of the new Wolfdales, the decision to pick up an E8400 is a very, very easy one.
E8400 is best bang for buck right now- and you get awesome performance. Really, if you are reading this and are having a hard time deciding on what to get, stop, click the "Add to Cart" button and smile. You won't be disappoited. Just make sure you MOBO supports the technology
It's not quad core... but that isn't necessarily a drawback. If you are a gamer, go with this. If you do a lot of video editing, wait for the new quads due out in March.
Built a new rig: GA-P35-DS3R, 8800 GTS 512, E8400, Vista 32, 4 Gig of Corsair Ram. Sweet mother of pearl! Gotta love Crysis!
