125 watts!? :eek:

The AMD prcoessors have higher wattage, where as the Intel procs have higher chipset watts, in the end, they both end up very close in consumption. :toast:

Sure I can, it's price competitors are the Q9400 ($189) and the Q9550 ($219). And it's faster than either of those :laugh:. If your comparing it to the higher priced i7's, that only can be paired with x58 boards, they aren't as flexible, and when your a gamer the PII still nudges it out. Either way, this is a Hit Deal thread, not a personal preference on whats better thread. This is a killer deal, and means there is truth to the PII 965 news.
