Can't say much about the Prescott yet. Maybe it's all in my mind, but the feel does seem quicker jumping through windows. Just got the CPU this afternoon so I haven't had a chance to really take it for a spin.

3.6ghz is a bit disappointing... After the holidays, I'll take a closer look, see if I can find a memory combination that will go better than 240, and push a bit more. For the next few weekends, I'll be upgrading a few rigs for family and friends.
