    HELP: buying new processor

    I'm upgrading my processor, and I was wondering if you could help me
    I need a socket 775 intel
    right now I have an Intel Pentium E6500 @ 2.93GHz
    I'd like to change for either an intel core2 quad or an intel core2 duo

    what do you recommend and why?
    ps: price does not count at this moment, I just want to hear your opinion on quad core / dual core
    Wow much signature

    I'd go for a intel i7 Quad core, because some *few but still some* games require more than 2 cores, it also gives you a little more stability.

    I would just get a new computer its hard to get core 2 quad and CPUs for 775 socket. Even if you could its all discontinued so it would be expensive as hell.

    Oh I hadn't noticed that yet. Well all I can say is upgrade your whole PC IMO. 775 sockets are 'rare' for CPU's

    Fine
    tl;dr version: q6600, but I recommend you upgrade the whole build. Not worth getting anything better than the q6600 any more.

    You can't use CPUs if they aren't made for the mobo socket / chipset you have ... seriously, get the fuck out of here and stop screwing around with everyone.
