There's a 15$ price difference at newegg (i7 930 at 284$ and i7 950 at 299$) and a 30$ price difference at microcenter (i7 930 at 200$ and i7 950 at 230$).. m 0 l kg4icg September 28, 2010 2:51:12 PM Since I live near a Microcenter, Newegg who? m 0 l anort3 a c 227 à CPUs September 28, 2010 7:47:21 PM Even for $30 more the 950 would be worth it in my opinion. m 0 l blackhawk1928 a b à CPUs September 28, 2010 7:54:59 PM You are getting a 13% increase in power (Clock) for a 5% price increase. Yes, its worth it. m 0 l 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).. m 0 l 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. m 0 l 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.. m 0 l Best solution hell_storm2004 a b à CPUs September 29, 2010 5:53:24 AM As of today, i7 950 eyes closed!
