I'm looking to build a medium-high end gaming machine, but I accept that I'm not gonna get the best graphics on the latest games, and luckily I'm not really into FPSs. So with that in mind, how do the two compare?
I'm also conscious of future upgrades, thinking if I save money now I can upgrade better and sooner, so I would also like to hear people's opinions on how long it will take for these CPUs (and the necessarily associated Mobo) to date. In 18 months to 2 years will either the CPU or mobo be salvagable, or will I be looking at pretty much a new build? And will getting the 6600 rather than 6400 make a significant difference to this question?
