I am trying to build a 1000 system and am currently trying to decide which of the two quad cores to get?
Q6600 vs Q9450
Is the Q9450 worth the 100 premium??
And also will i be able to use a p5k board with a q9450?
The Q9450 in my opinion is worth it with the added cache, plus i overclocked it to 3.6ghz. Lower temps. The Q6600 is still the best bang for the buck. I think you might need a bios update for the P5K. Why don't you get the P5Q, its almost at the same price point.
