  1. I'd go for the q9550 which has been $170 at microcenter. Worth the drive. It's listed in their current online ad.
  2. Thanks for this m8

    Just looked on ebay and see there not badly priced :) i was told my cpu is very bad for high end gaming so this q9550 should be a big increase in fps or am i thinking wrong?
  3. the Q9550 will give a serious increase in fps since that P4 bottlenecks even 4650's (ATi equivalent of an nvidia 9500GT)
  4. A Q9550 will make a large increase in gaming.
  5. sounds like its just what i need then. thanks for the help guy's i appreciate it, im of to get a q9550 :)

    I am afraid it will not make any noticable difference even if You overclock it to 4GHz
