I have the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.40GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB, Kentsfield, Quad-Core, Socket 775, Processor and it has been nothing short of amazing since 2007. I'm now looking at the Intel Core i5-2500 3.30 GHz Quad Core Processor and was wondering if anyone could tell me how it would perform relative to my kentsfield. I realize they are generations apart and there is nothing wrong with my kentsfield..but I'm chewing RAM up like crazy and Want a 32MB motherboard.

I love it. You really should make this an answer so I can choose it – KiloJKilo Apr 14 '12 at 11:44
From the FAQ, Super User is not about shopping/buying recommendations. This is what forums are for :) – Breakthrough Apr 14 '12 at 16:30
