QX6850 or Q9550 or Q9450

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
All right... Im thinking about switching to Intel. I need a few questions answered first... If anyone can help, it will be much appreciated.

All right, I can get a QX6850 for $500.00 dollars, a Q9550(X3360) for $560.00 or a Q9450(X3350) for $350.00.

Which one is the best deal and what is a good stable overclock I can get on each one? I have water cooling.

Is it better than the Q9550?
post #4 of 6
If the price is right, then it is between qx6850 and q5500. I would go for qx6850 because 9x and you can put 1.55v on it. Another good option is q9650 (locked qx9650)

For now I would say the 6850.

Seems that the 45nm Cores are more fragile... and digitally speaking I am a klutz.

So the QX6850 is going to be the best choice next to a QX9650?
