    The Q9650's .. :P

    The Q9650 has appeared on overclockers.co.uk and I'm very tempted .. 9x Multi, E0 stepping, 3GHz @ stock & 12MB of L2

    But is it worth the 315 (thats ~$630) price tag? Has the new stepping got rid of the C1's annoying 450-475 FSB wall? Even if it hasn't, the 9x multi and 450FSB yeilds 4GHz ..

    personally I am thinking go with the A9550 atm. But I am waiting for core i7 to be released so that I can see how the old quad prices are affected, if they drop enough maybe the Q9650 will become more viable. Price difference between 9650 and 9550 atm is £150 ($300)

    and if that kind of price is pocket change to you, you might as well get an extreme core hehe

    I'm too impatient to wait for i7 .. lol .. I'm 16 so nothing is pocket change, but I get paid at the end of the month (~£900) and that'll be my upgrade for the next fair bit I think .. It's either get the Q9650 or an E8600 .. so ~4GHz Quad or ~4.5GHz wolfie .. Decisions decisions!
