The only people that would really be interested in it would be extreme over-clockers and bench-markers giving this chip LIMITED appeal in the real world...
As a gaming or everyday CPU there's better for less.
4.5Ghz is stupidly impressive though!!!!
why do you always do this in appraisal threads when you dont know what your talking about?
its a frigging super golden Q9650 and isnt meant for everyday users?they can buy a normal one for $180.not everyone can or wants to upgrade their whole system.so this cpu is perfect for someone wanting a Q9650 thats a guaranteed good OCer.
anyway this is an awesome Q9650 so i say $220 to $250 range.
someone still running a UD3P will snatch this up fast.i know i would
if i still had mine
