Need New Quad

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
im looking for a new quad core cpu. I have been with AMD for a while but from the looks of it intel is doing better. I need both a new proccessor and mobo to go with it. I will be OCing and I need something that is good at it. I would go for a Q6600 but I saw a Q9450 which LOOKS better but idk. and I herd there is a new LGA chipset coming and I am wondering if I should wait. then I am not sure with the Nephlem (what ever its called) coming out. and I herd of a new intel board coming and idk if they are better than nForces. what do u guys think I should buy? or wait



I want to OC and I don't think id need SLI

I haven't heard anything about a new board or chipset but the Q6700 is a great choice. After OC you get the same performance as the Q9450. All really depends on the budget. Not sure about MoBos... Maybe a D3SL..

it depends on the board but both are about the same it will come down to the luck of the draw, there are some rumors of bad batches of q6600 that have went out but i dont know the details, but i also know that the q6600 can take a beating and still keep on going.

A Q6600(65nm cpu) and Q9450(45nm cpu) at the same clock the Q9450 will be better. You can compare their specs here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115042 I had to buy my current board that is in my sig rig because my GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L board wouldnt OC the Q9450 very well

i would get a phenom though, not cost effective going intel at this point when your AM2 board is fully working.
