I'm running a 2160 OC @ 3.0 on my 2 year old 775 system. I plan on upgrading to a Q9550 and using my computer for another 2-3 years. I'm currently happy with my cpu, and am willing to wait to take advantage of future price drops of the Q9550. How long do you think until Intel discontinues the Q9550?
Obviously, the price will go up once that happens. I don't want to look one day and find that I missed the boat. 6 months, a year?
