The P5G41-M is my current. The P5Q is my upgrade and the Q9650 is my cpu upgrade - Plus 8GB GSkill ram 1066​
I just retired my Q9450 and Asus Rampage Formula last year - they served me very well for eight years. It was a great overclocker too, going up to 3.52GHz with only a Hyper 212 Evo and perfectly manageable temps. The main thing to note is that given a powerful enough GPU, these CPUs can still do some good work. My Fury X got a massive boost (50% or more increase in FPS) after moving it to my new Ryzen system, but a semi-modern high-end-to-mid-range (say, a 960 or so?) card is still worth putting in there if you can get it.

Yeah I may or my not switch Motherboard's. Time will only Tell. For now I'm looking at upgrading my HP 8460P to a i7-2760QM from a i5-dual-core and x2 4gb ram from single 4gb

Suggestion:
Just popped a 775 system in the case for DD use here and happened to have a Xeon L3360 quad chip to use.
It's a true 775 chip (No mod needed to use) and it's a 2.83GHz chip stock. Has the full 12M L2 cache and even better is it's a 65W chip vs 95W for all other quads like it.

If you ever run across one of these I highly suggest you grab it for your build if you're still running it when you see one of these.
I've noted these are kinda expensive on fleabay but maybe you'll get lucky and find one reasonable like I did.

Pshh I got lucky with my HP 8460P for only 45$ in decent condition. I've seen these chips go for 45-100 but for now I'm fine

If I happen to spot another that's reasonable in price I'll let you know. Next time I pop into the local PC store I'll see if they have one loose like this one was - Scored it for $10 if you can believe that but I did. :cool:
You did get a nice deal with that, I was thinking with this chip you'd have the speed, lower temps and less power consumption too if you could find one reasonably cheap.

That's one thing I'd like to do. Here in Alabama near the water I know a good amount of shops here. Just I can't walk but hopefully soon as mentioned above

I assume you're speaking of the Mobile area, I'm just north of Montgomery myself.
If I do stumble across one I'll pick it up and let you know.

Good idea in theory those Xeons, but check mobo cpu support list, cause' my P5Q Pro does not have any Xeon support according to Asus.

I had a couple of 775 Xeons that run in an Asus 775 board that was a lot more basic than the P5q, and it seemed to run fine, might be BIOS dependant for the microcode.

Actually I believe it should work - If speaking about compatability with 771 chips you could be right about it but the L3360 is a true 775 Xeon, no modding required for it to work.
You will run across issues with doing a mod to use 771's in a 775 board, that fact but I know my REX for example will run it all day long even though it will only work with the 3xxx series Xeons and nothing else with the mod.
As long as the chip is a true 775 chip chances are good it will work.

However there is a caveat - Not all 775 chips work in all 775 boards "As is". Some boards with one BIOS file/later file will run later chips but not older ones, if you flash in an older BIOS file then it works with the older chips but not the newer ones.
Ran into that with my DFI P965-S Dark and had two files for each to flash the BIOS chip with based on what I was wanting to run.

Perfect budget build (a 1155 socket build would be better of course) , but i recommend you to pair it with a GTX 750 TI 2gb or GT 1030 DDR5 , and you will be able to run lots of awesome games like Fortnite , PUBG , GTA 5 , Call of duty black ops 3 , Battlefield 4 and lots of other nice games.

Think I'll be switching builds to my main 1150 for gaming and my 775 build for my MEDIA Server. As I OC'd to 2.8 from 2.4 and I tested and has no issues playing back video. Before I had these green Artifacts from time to time within 5-10min but now All is good
