    i may now have to get teh q8200 now is it still worth me getting a p45 mobo? as the overclock is going to be limited to about 3ghz and i could prob do that on a p35 am i right or wrong?

    Q8x00 series arent worth it, so little cache.

    I would choose an AMD quad over an intel quad less than a Q9450
