post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im currently using a phenom 1045t as i killed my 3770k frown.gif
But i will be getting another in 2 weeks, now ive got a mate who has a q9550 and he reckons he will swap his quad for my hex. I said yes straight away because 1. Its intel tongue.gif and 2 ive heard that these things sell for more than i bought the phenom brand new ($159 AUD) The motherboard he has is a gigabyte ep45 ud3, do you guys think this is a good deal?

Well as the extra 2 cores in the phenom are pretty much just "there" doing nothing important, I'd say so

I'd say depends on what you are doing. Mostly gaming? Otherwise not sure if it's worth your effort. Might as well just wait until you get your replacement 3770k.
