[UK] Q8200 | 2x2GB DDR2-800 | MSI P31 Neo - Page 2

post #11 of 16
£60 - 80 for the Q8200 depending on where you sell it, not too sure on the ram but DDR3 prices have come down as of late, no idea if this carries over to DDR2 though

Can't find much on the board, £30 - 40?

Thanks man.

allikat (sp?) said DDR2 prices had gone up actually,

The board's pretty rubbish and I think I'm the only person on OCN who actually uses one, so that's probably why nobody knows much about it

Maybe £35 though, that'd give me £120 minimum overall which isn't too bad, + £150 cash on and I'd have enough for something pretty decent ;D

Also thought that I could grab a UD3P and a Q9550/Q9650, not sure about that though as it'd probably cost the same amount as something with DDR3 RAM. I'd need to overclock to get the performance of something like an i5 and that'd mean a nice cooler too

DDR2 have sky rocketed as they aren't selling nearly as many as it's all gone DDR3

I'd say about £60-70 for the CPU

£40-50 for the RAM

£25 for the Mobo


Don't buy LGA775! wait for Sandy Bridge and watch the LGA 1156 prices lower! That's by far your best bet... I mean the Q9550 is still going for £170 from what I can recall....

Remember, LGA 1156 will pretty much lay waste to whatever 775 can throw at it because it's made to be superior in every aspect

I think the problem is, a highly overclocked Q9x50 with great RAM and a very good motherboard is almost on par with a modestly overclocked Core i5-750/760, mid-range RAM and a mid-level motherboard.

I've been thinking more and more that I should wait for Sandy Bridge... and then buy 1156

I don't like Intel's silly locked thingy with the CPUs, meaning that you have to spend more and get an unlocked CPU if you want to overclock at all. So the CPUs are going to be a lot more expensive to get a decent one, and no doubt release motherboards will be more expensive too.

The P55A-UD3 seems good value at around £100, here's hoping the price of that and the 760 go down ;D

EDIT: Just noticed the "depending on where you sell it" in your post Waffle, where were you thinking I would get the most money?

Only the 1155 is locked SO FAR and based on from what I've seen the unlocked versions are about £20 more then the locked partners....

I would highly recommend selling it on here as it's a close packed community and you'll almost never get ripped off, I've bought twice from here so far and I've given some money over and had to wait for the rest and I still received my product in very good condition and I was always in contact with my seller, it's just that level of trust this place gives you..

I hope any of my posts help you

Yeah, I think it's most likely I will sell on here. There is AVForums as well which generally seems to have more people looking for less high-end components than on OCN, might mean I can get more interest in my stuff/sell it for a higher price.

And yes, you've been helpful, thanks
