Until recently, yeah. I had a Core 2 Quad Q6600. MSI motherboard, but I don't remember the exact model.


I still have one of these sitting around, but I haven't used it in over 3 years.


Mine is still alive too since I didn't reuse any parts from it.

Yes, I still have an E8400. No need to upgrade.


Unless you want to play next gen games, then yeah, there's a need. If you're going to continue playing current games at low-medium settings, no, I guess not.


I don't play games.

I have two of them!

My bedroom PC is rocking an E6600 at 3.2 GHz and my HTPC runs a Pentium dual core at 3.25 GHz. They're still quite capable, usually limited more by their GPUs than anything.

You may be surprised at what dual cores are still capable of these days. My E6600/650ti PC can play BioShock infinite at just shy of all ultra settings while staying consistently at or near 60 FPS... not bad for an "obsolete" CPU IMHO.

What resolution are we talking about here? Certainly not 1080p.

When I put my main PC's 560ti in the box, yes it could do 1080p at those settings... remember, resolution is more a factor of GPU horsepower, not CPU.

With the 650ti, yeah it can't do 1080p smoothly due to its gimped memory bus, but since my bedroom TV is only 720p its no big deal (hence why I chose this particular GPU).

Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz still working fine 5 yrs later. Might upgrade around Xmas though, since it and the DDR2 RAM are definitely showing their age.
