when would you stop worring about overclocking. Only hardcore gamers will do that. Mainstream clients don't want to risk and they just want to know a plain what's best for my money answer. Business customers care about overall system performance.

For example, can you evaluate if VMware is running faster on this or that system. VMWare is a very demaninding system.

Dear bazad,

youve just inspired my 1st ever comment on any tech-site! =)
here are some comments to your statements:

1. when will we stop worrying about overclocking? N E V E R ! you should too.
2. not only hardcore gamers worry about overclocking. people on a budget who want the best bang for their buck have sleepless nights worrying if their new dream system has to break the bank. FYI...
3. if you want a plain whats-best-for-my-money answer... maybe a visit to your local dealer or even should solve your problem quite nicely. listen to their half profit-driven half mumbo-jumbo answers and quit wasting our bandwidth reading enthusiast sites like Xbit. =)
4. business customers not only care bout overall system performance. they care bout specific application (PhotoShop, AutoCAD, etc...) performance too.
5. WTF is VMWare?! LOL

i TOTALLY agree with Knibbo on how easy O/C-ing has been and will ever be.
enthusiasts or not, O/C will forever...

Hope you liked the GPU info I put.
As for the CPU prices drop...that's very good for gamers on a budget...But as for me I'll just wait
for the Core 2 Quad Q6700 to come in Q3 so I can buy that at a very nice price of 530 USD..

Ah? Ok! So AMD isn't that far behind.
At least they stay about neck and neck for stock performance vs. money spent.
I thought it was far worse.

Well... nice it means that there is atleast some hope for AMD in the future.

"Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 (LGA775, 1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB L2, Allendale);" = E4300?

Why in the world is E4400 faster or very simular in E6320 in many bench mark tests??!!

With all due respect, April is NOT the start of a price war between AMD and Intel. The price war started over ten years ago and just continues today. Intel has tried in desperation to maintain their illegally gained monopoly, but despite "fire sale" prices on their products, AMD continues to take market share from Intel in every single market segment.

Things will only get worse for Intel now that AMD is releasing Barcelona and it's many iterations.

I am assuming this is a joke, I don't believe people with views like this like this really exist...
