I'm wondering how many of us here still use the Core 2 architecture, in their main rig. Not a second pc, guest pc, laptop, I mean the main machine still having a Core 2 CPU. I had an i7 920 at one point, but I wound up with a Q6600 system. It doesn't seem that much different from the i7 machine, at least at the speed I run at. Certain specific things have suffered, but overall it's much the same.
