well the board and procie is good, though old.

you can probably buy an i3 with the same amount(not sure, not updated with pricing) , but with a not-so-good mobo.

but with the ROG and 9550, you can hit high clocks, just OC it. and i have to admit, the ROG appeal is hard to resist, esp if you cannot buy the latest ones and if it's ok for you to have an older tech pc

That's a very good deal right there, however I would try to get 6-or 8GB to ensure that there is enough ram.

LGA775 - 230$ and you have 8GB.

LGA155- i3 config

an I3-3220 is faster than a Q6600 at 4.05ghz with the same GPU (560ti) so it depends if you have 100$ more for a new rig or not...

PS: my Q6600 SLACR G0 needed 1.6V vcore to get over 4ghz (the max is 1.5V in the Intel specs) so i doubt you'll get close to 4ghz without really want it and as this is an used rig, stability is always a challenge (all parts have some degradation over new parts)

@Valentin Yes, i'm planning to upgrade it in 8gb if i take this will.

@spawnkiller so its wise if i just get this deal and try to O'C it? or should i just get newer tech just adding some $ and wait for a month :)

If the energy-bill is not an concern then try to overclock it but I personally would go with the new tech. You can also wait for haswell to come out on 15th of Jun or July; We are in April, next month is May where you would do the upgrade and Jun is next ahead.

With two months saving you might more and get a decent quadcore.

You can also change the direction from Intel and go with an AMD FX cpu, it's all up to you. However I don't know when steamroller cpu will come out (it's said August).

FX-6300 (6 cores) 140$ or FX-8120 for 20$ more (8 cores)
decent AM3+ motherboard at around 100$ ASUS M5A97
And a 8gb 1600mhz cl9 ddr3 kit for 50$

Total about 300$ and a new, much faster rig to answer your question...

With pleasure

Intel Quadcore System (didn't know 300 was the limit)

AMD FX - You can add the 8 core version.

AMD system under 200 so you can add ssd, new gpu, new case or anything that you like. With that motherboard you will be able to upgrade to steamroller cpu that will come Q2
