    okay so a guy posted up an advert at a community center near my place for some parts hes selling.. used & new (he doesnt stipulate which) anyway one of the big ticket items in the lsit is an intel core 2 extreme x6800 2.9ghz for $120
    my question is given that i currently sport a core 2 quad 2.66ghz is it worth it?

    I think core 2 quad 2.66ghz is faster in most cases than core 2 extreme x6800. So getting one will be a downgrade.
    Current rig: i5 3570 @3.8GHz, Asus 7750, Dell 24'' 2560X1440, Corsair Vengence 16GB Ram DDR3 @1600MHz, Chieftec 550W PSU, 480GB OCZ SSD + 500GB Seagate + 1TB WD hd, Windows 10 64-bit
