I hate it when I buy a new PC part and a brand new cheaper and better thing comes out the week after
also, I have herd that the low multiplyer makes the Q9450 worse than the Q6600
Personally I would wait for Nepalm. I don't know how it will perform other than burning your room down BUT, sounds freaking cool
Grab a 9450, a higher dollar Intel board $200+ OR a P5E higher dollar board and the chip will get up there. In a year or so, grab the Nehalm chip.
