    What exatly makes the Intel Core 2 Extreme stand out in performance above say a Core 2 Quad.
    I have a Core 2 Quad Q9300 so if i fitted a QX9650 what differences would i see apart from the price!!!
    I know my mobo will accept this processor but the price is putting me off.

    The CPU multiplyer is unlocked for one making overclocking a tad easier..

    I doubt that the price increase justifies the cost unless you are a hardcore gamer that wants the cutting edge. I was looking at new machines recently and couldn't believe the price increase either. By this time next year there is a good chance 8 core processors will be on the market, from what I understand..
