    Thanks William,
    Overall I tend to agree with you. Lately processors tend to be almost alike to each other. In the end all processors will face the same issue: Atom dimensions. You can make a processors faster and faster…but you can not split an atom! A processor at 3.0 Ghz will be sufficent for all operative systems for a long, long time!

    Actually the new i7 can be overclocked to reach speeds of 1600FSB so effectively would be faster especially with DDR3 ram.

    To be honest i was going to buy one for a new build for Windows 7 but i fail to see the difference between an i7 on a LGA 1366 socket & a LGA 775 socket Quad core processor.

    IMHO there is no speed difference because both processors fire out upto 1333FSB & most motherboards are only capable of that top speed.

    The only difference apart from the sockets is the price.
