I have two 775 based machines still in use:
-My HTPC is a e8400 (4.2GHz) with a P5Q-PRO Turbo
-My Racing game only PC is a Q6600 (3.6GHz), 790i, GTX 570, G27 etc etc
Other then that I have a 2600K rig, wife has a 2500K rig, there is an "extra" rig consisting of a 1090T, Crosshair IV etc. Oh yes... I cannot forget my kids rig. An AMD 1800+ with 2GB DDR 400 and a 6800GT!!
I have a colleague at work that is running a CD2 @ 3GHz on a mobo that doesn't even have pcie 2.0. He is gaming SKYRIM on a gtx460. I transitioned to quad core (or more) AMDs around 4 years ago and never came back, but I think will get a stab at an Intel system pretty soon.
