I heard KingT was looking for a high-end P5Q motherboard, since his P5Q Pro died.

Hit him up. Maybe he is interested.
I offered him to donate my P5Q-E or P5Q Pro Turbo for only shipping + a tad extra, but he said he couldn't accept the offer.

Also there are two tags in this thread - attention seeking, retarded thread (Probably jealous people)

Don't see why people are so negative..
Well, when half of your posts are you proclaiming that people are jealous of you, they seem quite applicable.

Well, If people cannot take a joke and have no humour they should stay out of my threads

I upgraded from Q9550 @ 3.6GHz/P5Q Pro To 2500K @ 4.6GHz /P8P67 Deluxe+8GB of Ram (RAM is cheap these days).. my games are running more fluid...

My Q9550 system was fine and running great, so I knew i was "stretching it"...but I have no regrets whatsoever now...

And did you use that GTX 560 SLI setup with your Q9550 setup? Via the SLI hack...

No,
I bought the 560Ti cards after I bought the Sandy parts...
Originaly, I bought a EVGA GTX590 classified...I kept it a few days and RMA'd it...the driver issues, possible throttling, voltage woes and all gave me a bad feeling...got a full refund ($729) and bought the two 560Ti's for $249 each (with $10 gift cards+games+MIR's)...anyway, I'm NOT SAYING that my 560Ti's are as fast as a 590, because they aren't, but I'll say that I'm HAPPIER with them...P get P8100 in 3Dmarks11 with SLI 560Ti's...I was getting P8500 with the GTX590...

I had a XFX HD5870 reference on the P5Q Pro at the time....

I installed the Sandy setup with a backup GTX260 core 216 that I have...it felt pretty much like the Q9550+HD5870...can't compare numbers, but that old GTX260 was getting a good kick in the pants from the Sandy setup...

Proof of previous GTX590 ownership...

Wow... 2x GTX 260 in SLI should equal more or less to a single HD5870... So that's pretty amazing..

u know, when u place order sometimes thats it.. no returning back..
unless...
u call them and tell them that u will cancel item by refusing to take it from ur doorstep...
i bet they will never again deliver to ya... hehe....

anyway whats + or - in your new setup is very hard since it all depends what u are doing on it...
honestly for me i would upgrade to something bit faster than q9550 since i started "again" job around photoshop and video editing...

if u didnt pay too much than its fine, but i know from place i was usually buying, price was 423 - 12e promo code.. which is still bit spicy since i didnt sold any of my items yet..

and when i think in advance, i would probably wait for Buldo to see what is he offering, and could be cheaper getting either Buldo or SB in a month time..

wow, this is first time i wrote this long post ...
