Q9550, it's future proof, keep your HDTV and save the monitor money, but get PC-2 8500 1066, good luck and keep us posted

Q9550 C1 vs E0 is NOT the same as Q6600 B3 vs G0.

C1s are quite respectable overclockers with 4GHz being pretty easy with the UD3P. E0 might get you 4.2GHz...
At long last...

There's no such thing as future proof. There's just, what hardware will keep me happy until my next paycheck!

the Q9550 will OC better since I believe it uses the newer 45nm instead of the older 65nm used on the q6600


Note the extra memory on the 4850 or 4870 you plan to buy will only be useful if you're gaming on a large monitor, otherwise it's better to stick with the smaller memory model.

Yeah don't forget that q6600 will struggle to get that 3.6 to 3.8 mark and most likely need water cooling to. As for the Q9550 can do those speeds easy on air cooling trust me

Is that tested stable?

Well, my previous Quad was Q6600 (G0)
on air(Scythe Ninja): 3,6GHz Prime95 stable
on water: 3,8GHz Prime95 stable
(for benches goes, for example in 3DMark06, even to 4,15GHz! On water of course.)


But my present Q9550... That's completely different story...

Check it out here:

+ 45nm Quads are by the same frequency up to 10% faster as old 65nm (Q6x00), and as you can see, they oc much better.

I decided I will get the Q9550 unless the Phenom II's are really as good as they are supposed to be. I think I will get the 4870 1gb and pick up a 24" as soon as I can. Then I won't upgrade my gfx card for a long time. Thanks for the help. I will give ppl rep when I get time.
