    I only paid £95 for my quad back in the day!

    You just gotta have sharp eyes for a bargain :D

    That is nice price and value. Just I don`t like the high FSB and low multi combination that comes with. For descent overclocking it needs expensive mobo.

    MUHAHAHAHHAA!

    I'm planning on getting another 2GB of RAM along with a Q8200 next month - hopefully I'll have some kind relatives that'll send me some 'presents' that'll help towards funding the parts. The all I'll need is an SSD.

    :D

    I don't think it's that great of a deal if you're planning on overclocking. With a 7x mult you'd need a motherboard that can hit 500fsb just to get to 3.5ghz.

    Yeah, it's a nice cheap quad if you don't mine the limits on overclocking. 2.8Ghz (400 x 7) is an easy hit, I did it on mine with a passive Scythe Ninja Rev B.

    The Microcenter in Tustin, CA is always magically out of stock of whatever part is in these great sales, such as with this or with the i7 920 at $200.

    be better off picking up a Q6600, though this is one hell of a deal even for a cripple.

    Dang talk about a sweet deal. Yeah not the best quad out there but for $100 its a steal. Too bad none of you guys could get your hands on one.

    imho if you want a good overclock on a low multiplier p35 is the best i plan on getting a Q8200 and running DDR2 1200mhz or so with 1:1 ratio [for maximum memory bandwidth] wish i had the money to get it right now

    How is that board holding up?


    Also and that is a good deal. Was thinking of going Quad but if i ever need the power i will just overclock this little fella.
