Yes before it gets flamed, yes the 9500 is one of the chips that suffers with the TLB issues but if your up on things you will know it not an issue and if you have no idea what I'm talking about don't worry about it!
#2
Oh and before the "My over clocked q6600 is loads faster than this" yes it is, good for you. But did it cost you more than £400 with a GTS250, yes it did.

Nice price for a quad-core with a reasonable graphics card, even though it isn't built with the latest components. I can't say how good the card is, because NVIDIA are constantly renaming their cards, but I don't think it is a GT200 based card, but a 9800 rebrand - anyone care to do the research?

One thing - check if the motherboard is AM2+ or just AM2. If it is AM2+ then it can accept the latest Phenom II CPUs which are quite cheap and run quite a lot faster.

Well yes it basically a rebranded 9800GTX so still holds it head high enough for the people who this PC is aimed at.

As for the mobo its an AM2+, but TBH I wouldn't bother about upgrades, if thats your thing then I'd self build all the way. This will appeal to people who want to game for a few years and will then just but a new machine.

Yes I have much interest in the Phenom II the 550BE X2 with the Asrock mobo would be great for overclock or even the possibility of unlocking the other 2 cores, but cant justify more than 2 desktops...............or can I! :roll:

Just one thing I would point out, unless the game(s) you want to play are optimised for quad core and/or you're using other software to that takes advantage of 4 cores, then you're probably better off gaming on a faster dual core machine. The Intel dual cores are a good choice especially as they're (*very* roughly) 20% faster clock for clock than the AMD processors (i.e. 2.5GHz AMD roughly= 2.0GHz Intel).

Virtualization (if you're likely to need it).
The only slight hiccup with Intel processors is that the cheaper ones don't have the Virtualization technology needed for the proposed running of Win XP inside Windows 7 for compatibility issues. AFAIK the quad cores and E8x00 Intels are the lowest processors that contain the Virtualization code whereas almost all of the AMD processors, at least the dual cores and above and even some single cores iirc, have the required bits.

Very true if you are using games that only support dual core you could then yes the E8*00 series is a better choice but you could use task assignment manager and use a core for your malware and one for you system tasks. Leaving 2 for pure gaming.

As for Virtualization then yes the E8*00 series and the quads apart from the Q8*00 series as does the E6*00 series along with a few odd others like late E5300 and E5400 ('L' on part number denotes this).
