More about core e8400
  1. Updated architecture and 32nm fabrication on the i3's. They're faster basically
  2. but sir how much faster????

    i see benchmark...it shows minor difference in i3 and E8400
  3. and sir is i3 better than Q9550 or not???
  4. Two things.

    1. Don't call me sir :P

    2. The Q9550 is a quad core and the i3's are all dual cores so the answer would be no. Although, the difference between the two isn't HUGE (depending on the use).

    the Q9550 would be your cheapest option, assuming your motherboard supports it

    the i3 and i5 would need a new motherboard and DDR3 RAM

    and another 100 dollars spent on Bill Gates for Windows ;)
  8. i already have ddr3 rams.... nd im thinking about future....

    is it best that i would go for i5-750????

    the real life difference is that the E8400 and Q9550 are on a dead socket Intel will no longer support with future CPU. While the i3 is on a socket that will have future CPU released in the coming years. So the i3 would be your best bet for future proofing a new PC build while the Q9550 is fine for upgrading a current build.

    The problem with the E8400 is if you want to upgrade in 18 months or so, prices for Q9550 will only be higher. Its a fine CPU though if you plan to make a new build and just want something to hold you over.
