You gave bad (read: WRONG) advice.
i7 > Core2Quad in Photoshop...every site has shown this.
The fallacies first came into play AFTER your bad post.
You couldn't rebuttal, so you resorted to fallacies...pure smoke&mirrors to hide your piss-poor advice in conflict with reality
I really don't want to have to read through another one of his flame posts, but I had to post this in case he really couldn't find where he had stated it. Granted he said he was using smoke&mirrors to hide his poor advice, and not that the advice itself was pure smoke&mirrors, but it was the same flamebait to flesh out more arguments, so it really doesn't matter.
Anyway, I've been contemplating the same change, Q6600 -> i7. So far have held out, but the upgrade urge keeps hitting me, but I've been strong so far. To be honest I turn the desktop on less and less as time goes on. I guess my laptop can do just about everything I need from it aside from gaming, encoding, ripping (at an adequate speed), and large photo work.
You've already got your hands on a good i7 board, so at this point go for it!
