Planning to upgrade soon (next month really) and thinking C2D is the way to go, but am intrigued by the promise of cheap quad-cores in the not too distant future...
Will an e4300 hold it's ground with an 8800GTS and 2Gb pc6400 cas5? I get the feeling I should either get a 4300 now with a view to definitely going quad-core or I should get an e6600 now and keep it longer? Some overclocking is fine but it might be going in a mATX case so temperatures are all-important (which is another reasons quad core is scary!)
Also I gather the e4300 might not like Vista as much as the e6600 ... something to do with virtualisation?
thoughts on e4300 vs. e6600 in games? Would I even notice the faster cpu?
