The LGA 775 socket that the Q9400 uses is done for so I'd go AM3 for the future upgrade potential and the DDR3. mi1ez a b à CPUs June 5, 2009 12:09:51 PM I think I'd go PII too. nachota1987 June 5, 2009 3:44:17 PM ok i think ill get the pII and what about the stock cpu coolers? are they trustful? im not planning to overclock it soon but maybe in the future if i will, i should get an aftermarket cooler right? ill also game a lot.. nachota1987 June 5, 2009 4:45:36 PM ok ill take that in mind Devastator_uk June 5, 2009 6:06:36 PM I'd get the PhenomII And stock coolers are fine at stock speed, but are not the quietest if if you ever do overclock then it would be best to change it. So no need to fork out money for an aftermarket one straight away. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWhich one to go for with FX 6300 and Radeon R9 270x ?
