i ordered a q9450 brand new oem from an intel retailer, and then as i was selling my old q6600 plus 4gb of my ballistix crucial ram , i got a final bid of 215 dollars + 10 bucks shipping , which is pretty decent for something i used for over 6-8 months ................ anyways so i thought if i sell my q9450 now i shud get atleast 370 for it back on ebay , so thats up there now ( i bought it for 355 shipping included ) i still have the original reciet which gives full 90 day warranty form the retailer himself. anyways so i calculated that wud make me up by 215 + 370 = 585 approx

so then i went and bought a qx9650 for 680 + free shipping on ebay from a power seller , soo overall i am only setback 100 bucks which is not bad at all considering the power of the qx9650

so now i cant wait for it to be in my hands .............. also one quick question , i did upgrade my bios for the new cpus but it didnt say which ones on asus website , so making sure that the york will run on my mobo or not , just wanna confirm so i am at peace of mind. :D

Nice deal I hope you love it. I wish I would of bought the QX9770 now, but that would of put me way over budget as it was with a 790i board.

I bet it works with your board, it does have PCI-E 2.0 which is a big sign that says it will.

They also hit 5.0 on xs with just chilled water


I think the chip just overclocks better.
