Are you sure it is the QX9650?

Q6600

Those dual core 45nm chips are for the retail masses, not true performance enthusiast. If you are going to spend over $200 on a CPU, get a Q6600. A lot of people that jumped on the 45nm bandwagon and purchased e8400's sold them to get quads. The 65nm quads are getting 3.6Ghz consistently with ample cooling. It is a steal imo. I found mine on eBay for super cheap.

I don't care much for quad-cores, they aren't really useful yet. But that's just my opinion, someone with a Q6600 will quote me now

^thanks

Can anyone clarify what this is? YFD C-1 [(QDF: LAN2) 3.2 GHz XEE 1600 MHz]

What hardware requirements are necessary?

Also, just wanted to verify that the Q6600 is YFD C-1 [(QDF:LAN3) 3.0 GHz XE 1333 MHz] - is it the extreme version? I thought they were denoted as QX...

Yes, but the new dual cores are hitting 4ghz plus and outperform the quads on a majority of the applications. By the time most applications are able to use 4 cores, today's processors will be sluggish.

For the first one I'm guessing that you will need a mobo that supports 1600FSB.
