Minus well run something like 3dmark 05 or 06. Any benchmark not listed on HWBot is useless.
Ahem, that aside, you probably won't see much increase from a e8400 to an i3 if you are just gaming. That said, are you having any problems with your current setup? Unless you have a huge monitor, a e8400 and 4890 should handle most things...
where are ya hey zeus!? im quite interested in your score
here is mine vs a i3 540 @4.6ghz....on this test, mine is at the speed in my earlier screenie
just barely beat out the i3 overall, so im gonna guess clock for clock, the E8x00's are better than the i3's in this synthetic bench
heres mine..but how in the hell is he getting a 6k score with a lower clock than me on an identical chip ?
EDIT: lol....i was looking at the wrong person's hahah....was an i5
savesam...what kinda memory you have?
