    BFBC2 better with i7 Hyperthread on ?

    eer i dont think u read my post correctly .. i think i mentioned that if BFBC2 is HT aware then it'll perform better with HT .. otherwise not .. i kept it simple .. so if somewhere in the readme of by the devs directly u get the info that BFBC2 is HT aware then u should always play with HT...

    BFBC2 better with i7 Hyperthread on ?

    But physically its still 4 cores running 8 threads .. unless BFBC2 can exclusively benefit from HT i don't think u'd notice a great increase in performance .. in such cases a higher clocked 4 core proccy should be better than a lower clocked HT enabled quad with 8 threads .. particularly since...

    core2duo and dual channel memory efficiency

    Actually for the E2140, running at stock FSB and ddr2-800, the ratio will be FSB : DRAM will 1:2 and not 1:1 .. proccy FSB will be at 200(*4), and RAM at 400(*2) .. 1:1 signifies both being at same clock :p From my experiences, i can say that the C2D's are very much FSB sensitive, meaning it is...

    sun rays are not dx10 features , u can get sun rays on a dx9.0c card in Clear Sky for 24 hours :p Also , edge smoothing is nowhere as good as MSAA in dx10 mode :p , i've tried it myself and it look damm good with normal MSAA , edge smoothing blurs the whole scene a bit .. I play in dx9.0c mode...

    Its pretty simple .. do u get Wet Surfaces and Volumetric Smoke in XP ?? If i'm not mistaken , dx10 effects are set by totally diff. variable than dx9 one's , r3_.. as compared to r2_.. of dx9.0c .. so unless it lets u could fool it to be running in dx10 , the effects should still be disabled ...

    Its been 10 days that i've been using two of these drives .. haven't face any problems yet, and hope that these don't fail on me coz i've everything dumped in these .. performance seems fine, and i've been defragmenting a lot coz of my new installs :P , OS and applications and games etc. etc.

    keep my q6600 or buy a e8600

    Keep the Quad, it'll be better over a longer run .. keep it at 3.2 GHz and enjoy the show .. instead u could buy a better display to crank up the res., which should lessen the bottleneck .. but even at 1680*1050, the diff. wouldn't be drastic between the two CPU's, more like 100 to 110 :P, isn't...
