Why are lga775 chips still so much money?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am doing my LAN build and have the chip already, but I just was looking around at the Q9550 and the dam thing is more now then when I bought it lol.

WHY??? is it worth that much? is it going to be just as good as a I5 or I7? I am just so confused.

As I just stated I own the Q9550 and using it for my LAN rig but I had forgot how to OC it lol I have had my AMD for a year and got so used to the AMD way that the Intel was like Greek to me lol. I forgot vtt and what was safe for the core and just everything (age + pot + Harder Drugs = duh) lol

My main thing is the first question and that is why are they still so much money

Because a they are still powerful enough to play the latest games quite well.

Because they are on a dead socket and people who want to upgrade without buying a new MB + switching to DDR3 memory etc.. have to pay a premium


.......... though i'd sell my 775 stuff and get a 2500/2600k before i'd pay the price of the Q9550

I already have the Q9550 as I said twice!
I have DDR3 on my mother board for the 775 and that still does not really answer the question (to tell the truth it sounded like bashing) maybe I took it wrong

Its still the same price cause they want to make profit on old stock i'm pretty sure.

I answered your question as to why they cost so much, nothing to do with the fact you already have it. I have a q6600 and before I'd buy another i'd sell my E6400 + p35 + ddr2 mb and build a AM3 PIIx4 with ddr3 and not be out of pocket more than the cost of a quad for the P35 mb.

^This.

There is little, if any production. If Intel actually makes any of these anymore, they have to make up for the money they could of made producing a bigger selling CPU.

This is the short version of what I said

as I said maybe took it wrong sorry was not trying to pick a fight

I don't get it still I mean I have everything so not a buying issue, I just don't get aren't things as they get older go down in cost!? that is the part that I can not get my head around. plus they still selling the chips but not full atx boards just micro weird stuff to me

I don't know maybe I am just stupid lol but it seems as if they are forcing people to upgrade to 1155 or 1156 or 1366 or ext.... lol

They are still expensive to push people to upgrade to newer CPUs instead of investing in old tech.
