Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 Kentsfield Quad-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 130W BX80562QX6850 Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The QX6850 running at stock speeds is very capable of handling everything i have thrown at it. I will routinely have multiple windows open, multiple apps, and still am able to instantly open up anything else (including games), without hesitation. Also i upgraded from a Q6600, i didnt think i'd see very much of a difference in speed, but i was totally blown away.

Cons: The only con of course is the price, simply because its 65nm but still retains the 1000+ price.

Other Thoughts: If you have the need or ability to see the benefit in quad-core processing i would definitely recommend this product. It runs much cooler than my Q6600 did (both are stock speeds), and will run circles around anything i throw at it.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 BX80562Q6600 Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Please see 'Other Thoughts' for system specs* This Processor is simply amazing. I remember when i purchased a single-core a few years ago, and the jump from that to dual-core and how impressed i was with it. I must say, I'm equally impressed with the jump to quad core. I see an improvement in everything, especially in the demanding Vista environment (compared to XP). I love to just see Task Manager and watch how low my Processor usage is.

Cons: None, who would have thought i would have the power of 4 processor cores in one amazing machine. There are no limits.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently running this processor on an Intel DG33TL Motherboard, 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR800 Memory, 8800GTS 640MB, 74GB 10,000rpm Hard Drive, 80GB & 500GB Hard Drive, Sound Blaster sound card, 5.1 surround sound, 24inch monitor. Very excellent setup and am very pleased with everything. (most came from the egg)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This memory has been running great for the past couple days that i've had it. I Immediately ran Memtest86 when i received it, ran 21hrs stable 5-5-5-15, no errors. I bumped up from 2GB to this kit of 4GB and will never go back. Running Vista Home Premium.

Cons: None what-so-ever.

Other Thoughts: I have Adobe CS3 Master Edition, running on Quad-Core Q6600, This 4GB RAM, 8800GTS 640MB graphics card. I think I'm going to order another set, to make 8GB total. I think i would see a benefit with the CS3 Suite. I already have a Raptor 10,000rpm HD for photoshop scratch, etc. But since i'm running a 64-bit OS, have a quad core CPU, strong Graphics card, i think the next logical step is 8GB. Even if it doesnt increase performance, never in my wildest dreams would i have thought i'd be running a rig with 8 GB of RAM a year or two ago. So if anything else i think i'd like the bragging rights! really tho, i recommend this memory, 2GB modules future-proof yourself, at least until everything turns DDR3.
