Hi Folks,

I thought this would help bring some organization to the processors section a bit. Post away!

Core 2 seems to be a solid choice, but...
...advances in technology are made so quickly these days. It would suck to jump on the bandwagon now only to see a better CPU come out in 3 months or less for the same price. I'm a gamer and want a rig that will rip through games like UT2007 & Crysis.

I guessing your thinking 2X2 or 4x4 (or what ever it is, the AMD thing) will be the thing. I dout that UT2007 would slow with an e6600, besides its going to come down to the GPU more than the CPU. Once gmae makes start coding for the second processor then it will be a big jump in Games, once core could do the gaming and the other could do the all loved physics, effectivly removing the need for a PPU.

So far my next upgrade path is: E6700 on "bad axe" with 2 x 1gb ballistix PC-6400, will wait for DX10 cards.

I've always had good luck with Intel boards and the "bad axe" can't overclock a non EE CPU out of the box. I'm not into overclocking anyway so while value-wise the E6600 is clearly a great choice, I can actually afford a $500 proccessor this time around! Hopefully I'll be just as enthused about 2.66ghz a year from now.
A DX10 capable xfire setup is on my most wanted list!

agreed Covert.

so recovering why not build a Core2 duo system now.......and then just upgrade to vista when it comes out?

My upgrade budget is fixed. If my x-amount will by y-setup now and z-setup is better but can be bought for the same price as y if I wait a bit longer, then I don't mind waiting another 2-4mos. By then Vista will be out, DX 10 cards will be out and core2 prices might be lower!!!
P.S. In forums, just like in the real world, I'll decide who I "like" and/or can relate with and who I don't want to deal with. The people I'm dealing with can of course make the same decision!

Yes C2D will be cheaper by then (modern CPUs anyway) but then you run into the problem that Vista is gonna set you back a few hundred bucks....a HUGE PSU will set you back another few hundred bucks...and a DX10 card will set you back at least $400....

So just vista and dx10 alone will almost $1000.....

interesting situation you are in though. Do you just set urself a specified amt of $$ you use to upgrade PER hardware generation or....

Though people often complain about lengthy waits for PC game releases, these hiatus' offer savvy consumers the opportunity to thoroughly profile titles prior to purchase. An individual can then compile a list of games they wish to play and invest in hardware that will adequately run those games. That is what dictates what I buy and How much I'm willing to spend. Here's my shortlist: Elder scrolls, HL2fran., Prey, 2142, UT2007, Crysis, Bio-shock.

So you are building this rig at the MOMENT for these specific games. Forgive me, but in the context it just makes it seem as if you are never going to upgrade your PC...like you are going to build your PC initially but then let it stay at that idle performace until the next gen comes out? I am just curious is this is what you mean but your prior few posts....
