Don't know which one to get? Are you staying with your current Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6300 rig? Or drooling at the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E4300 but don't know if Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E4400 makes more sense? Will the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6420 packs enough punch? This benchies migh help you decide. I have been meaning to post it but time has always been a luxury that I don't have much. So anyway, I finished analyzing some results, but I won't be posting any conclusion, instead, I'll post the benchmarks and I'll leave the conclusion to you guys. Check out a number of benchmark results of these processors, from 3DMark01 to SuperPi...
