Today we are looking at how the latest quad-core and dual-core processors from AMD and Intel compare when powering the almighty GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card. This CPU scaling article looks at gaming performance and should help those looking at building a high-end gaming system...

In the past we have compared the Phenom X4 9850 to the Core 2 Duo E8400 using GeForce 8800 GTX and 9800 GTX graphics cards.
