I posted a similar question before about the q9450, and reached the conclusion from responses on this board that it was a lateral move. Now I am considering the q9650. Basically i got the ASUS p5k premium specifically because it could be upgraded to 45nm. Now I am thinking that this will be the only option for upgrading this board before all new Intel CPU's come out next year.
Is this the best option for an upgrade with this current Gen?
I have my q6600 running at about 3.0GHZ already, do you think there is more overclock headroom with the q9650? will i notice a difference?
