The situation changes completely when using 3D software to render images and video; the dual-core sub-$1,000 machine is put to shame by the Q6600-equipped sub-$2,000 machine, its overclocked result notably shy of the sub-$2,000 machines stock result! The sub-$4,000 machine easily takes top honors however, sporting four cores and high clock speeds.

    Mmm, so everyone who's going to overclock their PC has a gaming-quality 24" LCD? No? So why didn't you focus on 1680*1050 if you're going to even bother including the sub-$1000 system in the comparison? That's the standard resolution of high-end 17" and most mainstream screens under 22" (even some cheap 22" as well)
