Yes, its worth it. Emperus a c 81 à CPUs September 28, 2010 8:14:59 PM blackhawk1928 said:You are getting a 13% increase in power (Clock) for a 5% price increase. Yes, its worth it. It is actually a 7% rise in clock speed for a 15% rise in price (considering microcenter prices) and approx. 8% rise in price (considering newegg prices).. blackhawk1928 a b à CPUs September 28, 2010 8:32:56 PM ^I was considering newegg and assuming the prices for the 930 is 284 and the 950 is 299. Check your math skills buddy And I did approximate but your numbers are still way off if you saw the same prices I did. Emperus a c 81 à CPUs September 29, 2010 4:43:07 AM Oh well, my mistake.. Its just over 5% rise in pricing considering newegg prices..
