Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q9400 & Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard

http://www.frys-electronics-ads.com...essor-Q9400-Gigabyte-GA-EP45-UD3P-Motherboard

Saw it and it seemed a little too good to be true since the CPU can be 200 alone, and the MOBO is a little more than 100. I have a stock MOBO from an hp system 2-3 years old w/ a AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core and was wondering with the cost of RAM if it would be worth the upgrade.

Any advice is appreciated. =-)

i7 would probably be super overkill for me. Most my machine would do is 1080p HD content and some gaming here and there. No number crunching nonsense. =-P

Frys just had i5+mobo for $199. Im sure they will run something like that again so you may want to hold out a bit for that combo.
