It has been a while since I have been on or posted on this website. I came here because any time I have posted I have gotten very helpful responses. Anyways, this website BeastXPC has the Q9550 for 224.99 which is a really good price, the only thing is the website looks pretty crappy and I have no idea if this is legit or not. Here is the URL. http://beastxpc.ath.cx/index_q9550.htm
If anyone knows anything about whether or not this website is legit, please let me know because that is a great price! Thanks in advance for your help.
Yes, I already have a 775 mobo with an e8400 @ 4.0 ghz. I was jus trying to upgrade the processor to a q9550 so I could have a quad core because all these games coming out nowadays recommend quad cores. If I was building a new comp I would definitely go i7 because they are about the same price, but I am not ready to replace my mobo and RAM as well.
Just like Raidur said at newegg it is $280, but it is probably because it has an E0 stepping on it while the other one has C0 huh? I heard the E0 stepping is way better for overclocking.
Anyways, thanks for the help, probably just going to save up to buy it off newegg because I know that is a legit website and I will probably get the E0 stepping. Thanks again for the help, you guys are always so helpful on this forum.
