    Im still running my Yorkfield-6M processor and to be honest i dont see any need to upgrade in the next 1-2 years. Very casual gaming and not a lot of CPU intensive tasks.

    I used to have an Athlon 2200+ but the GPU died and i decided to change it all.

    Actually before this Quad Core i used to have an Intel Dual Core E2180 but i needed a bit more oomph so i got on Ebay and purchased this processor for $45. A steal if you ask me.

    I want to keep my motheboard as long as possible . . . the LG775 tops out with QX9xx Processors and they are barely faster than the one i got but were like 4x more expensive. :blink:

    I'm running an eight-plus year old Pentium 4 630 and have no interest at all in gaming or even (at this time) upgrading, but I hope Intel and AMD continue to push the envelope- even if primarily for gamers.
    At some point in time I will need or choose to upgrade and it certainly won't be to a laptop and absolutely not a tablet.
    My next computer will be a minitower or midtower PC- something I can customize and enhance as I choose.
    Every time Intel and AMD advance the technology, it nearly always makes the new mid-level CPUs that follow and that I will choose from faster and better.
    -So although I'm not a gamer, I benefit from the emphasis.

    As of now AMD is the best option IMO. They have kept using the AM3+ socket for a loooooong time but i guess sooner or later they will change it. :D
