im running a Core 2 Duo E8400 and its taken everythin ive thrown at it. i see no use in wasting money on a i7 or a oct-w/e. theyre over kill.
Yeah, i7 is a waste if you don't encode, or run multi-threaded apps; with its 8 threads and all. I can't even max my Phenom II X4 940 out. Most apps are written for dual-cores, nowadays. Not alot of games out that utilize more than 2 cores, either.
