For a few hours work I'd say it was worth it, even if you end up selling one of the cpu's afterwards.

I suppose it all depends on the work. I can think of a lot of things I would not want to do for a couple hours, lol. Honestly, though, I would go for it. It should gisve you a decent performance increase, OC well and, you can always sell the E6850 to get some $$.



edit: For 2 hours, I would. See, if I got the money, i would just blow it on booze anyways. At least a CPU would last me longer, lol.

if it really is a QX6850, it sounds like a fantastic deal. The unlocked multiplier will give you a great advantage in overclocking ability, and the four cores will make things amazing.

I have a quad nozzle in mine. Seemed to make a slight difference. Since I don't feel like taking my loop apart, it is staying, lol. In the end, I say it is worth it. Most people see a few C drop with it.
