The Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 and E8400 have just been reduced in price, making them even better value than they already were. I still recommend the E8400 over the former, though.

You have the option of moving those hard drives to the new computer for a much more efficient transfer of files? Or the machines are still in use?


use them for taking apart and installing weird things on, and have some docs in open office on one that need to be transfered, and also my motherboard only supports SATA and these are IDE
