Performance NDA of the upcoming 1333 MHz front-side bus Core 2 Duo E6750 lifted
Intel today lifted the performance non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, for the first product of its
Core 2 Duo E6x50-sequence lineup
—the Core 2 Duo E6750. Despite being the first refreshed Conroe-based processor since the
, the Core 2 Duo E6750 clocks in below the dual-core flagship Core 2 Extreme X6800. Intel clocks the Core 2 Duo E6750 at 2.66 GHz, identical to the E6700.
New to the Core 2 Duo E6750 however, is a faster 1333 MHz front-side bus to match the new
, including the new
. Besides the faster front-side bus, the new Core 2 Duo E6750 has an identical feature set to the E6700 including 4MB of shared L2 cache. Other
Core 2 Duo E6x50-sequence
processors have the same shared 4MB L2 cache configuration and Intel has no plans of releasing a 1333 MHz front-side bus processor with 2MB of L2 cache.

Intel Virtualization, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep, Intel 64 and Execute Disable Bit technologies make a return on the Core 2 Duo E6750 and E6x50-sequence processors.
Intel Trusted Execution Technology
, formerly known as
, sneaks its way into the new Core 2 Duo E6750 and E6x50-sequence processors.
Expect a hard launch of the Core 2 Duo E6750 and E6x50-sequence processors in the coming weeks. Intel plans to launch four Core 2 Duo E6x50-sequence processors with speeds varying from 2.33 GHz to 3.0 GHz including a TXT-less E6540.

With an athlon 64 3400+ and 2gbs of ram, you don't anything else to run vista.
If you want a better graphics card supporting DX10, I guess that could be the only thing you need to upgrade.
I'm using an athlon 64 3200+ with just 1gb of RAM for two years now, and keeps up great for the things I do (watch videos, play old games like mame / scummvm), but well... I guess I have the consumerist gene activated as I drool over new technology and many times I just can't wait and have to buy the latest and greatest, even when it won't be so much of an advantage for my everyday use.
Sometimes I think that being a compulsive tech junkie feels just as sweet for as alcoholic drinks seem to be for so many people :D
I don't think I'll be able to start 2008 without getting a quad-core, multi-gigabyted, well cached drink (?)
If you just happen to have some free will at sell, I think I could buy some :D

DX10 is NOT worth it right now...
Most of the games that support DX10 actually run slower in DX10 than DX9, the performance advantage is not showing up yet. Also whether or not games will look better is up to the developers, even Crysis will look very similar in DX10 compared to DX9. DX9 cards can do whatever DX10 cards can, but eventually they will be less efficient.
The Unreal engine developer estimated that DX10 will not be required until 2011/2012. DX10 is definitely not a "must-have"
