LGA775 - Upgrade options to a quad-core, thoughts? - Page 2

i wish microcenter still had super cheap Q9550's and 920's. A Q9550 will handle crysis with enough graphics horsepower behind it, so you may want to pull down some benchmarks and find something close.

Wait until newegg start selling Intel sandy bridge stuff, then look out for a used Q9xxx quad on ebay or on here. There are some great deals to be had on here if you're lucky.

Q9450/Q9550 if you can find one in your price range, Q6600 if you can't. Avoid the Q8*00 and Q9400 chips.

Q9550s usually go for $160-200 on OCN, depending on stepping revision, OC results, etc. Q6600 usually around $100, again depending on stepping, etc. I sold my B3 Q6600 for $90. If you consider a Q6600, you'll probably want aftermarket cooling. Those things run hot.

And yes, to us enthusiasts 775 is a 'dying' socket but in reality it is the most widely used socket by a huge margin. You know what that means? Cheap upgrades when people/organizations start offloading 'old' 775 gear!

Thanks.

My only concern about the Q6600 is heat dissipation and lack of SSE 4.1 instructions. I would love a Q9550 for cheap, but I'll settle for a Yorkfield 6-M.

I would save the money and wait till you can afford to do an i5 or Sandy-i7 conversion later on.

I've been the Anandtech benches - the differences are minimal at best.

I actually do a lot of hd video encoding, and this chip (q9550) is actually quite fast at it, even more so now at over 4ghz
