  1. Err, well. Depends. On a lot.

    Are you putting this in an existing motherboard? If so, what model is it, and what CPU socket? What Power supply do you have?

    Are you buying a whole new machine?

    etc.
    Need more detail.
  2. i dont know what system you are using but look at these:

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103674

    Intel Core2 Quad Q9400 2.66GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115131

    that should be good if you have an am3 or socket 775 system.
  3. Intel Core i5 is a probably the best CPU you can get for ~$200, but if you need to put it into an existing system, that won't work too well.
    If you have an AM2+ system, you can still use the AMD Phenom II x4 955 or 965. Both are under your price range.
  4. Ok i have a intel board... But I dont think it would fit so do anybody know about a good board at a good price etc,
  5. A board for which CPU?
