That'* what I was considering. For me, equivalence is in price range, since the stats on both processors don't really mean the same thing.

If you wantr to wait a few months, the new generation of core2 duo'* ae just coming out. They are produced on a new process that runs even cooler, uses less energy, and over clocks great thanks to the new 45nm process.
