However, if you already have a Q9550 I wouldn't run out and by an i5 just yet. But if you're in the market for a new system, you should NOT be considering that Q9550.

OR if you wanna upgrade your CPU for games, DON'T waste your money and keep the Q9550 for at least a year. Better buy a new GPU. Misko195 April 21, 2010 8:49:34 PM No, i don't have Q9550.
