Hey guys, I've run into some troubles with planning a new build. It all started when I bought a PC with the following specs for £50.
Case: Antec 900 with all fans
CPU: Intel Pentium D (Can't remember which model) OC'd to 4.3GHz but still at POS level.
RAM: 2GB DDR2 667MHz (Ordered another 3GBs)
Mobo: MSI Platinum P965
PSU: 600W Thermaltake PSU
Graphics: GeForce 8400GS (Ordered a 5770 for £38)
I was wondering if anyone knows what the best Core 2 Quad processor to buy at a *reasonable* price is. I've been looking at the Q6600 but can't seem to find info on whether it holds its own in today's Gaming/Productivity world.
In terms of spending I picked up the PC originally for £50 and have spent around another £50 on the graphics and RAM. My max budget for the CPU in theory is around £50-75 unless something biblical came up.
