WTB Core 2 quad q9650 or q9550

Got a pc for free from a friend who upgraded and just want a better processor for the lga 775 socket it came with. I don't want to spend too much because this is just a small project mainly for a backup pc

  1. Not all 775 MB are created equal. Have you checked the CPU compatibility?
  2. Yep already checked up on that
  3. Ebay is best bet. Bought one over a year ago for 120$. Should be cheaper these days.
  4. Best answer

    check out the LGA 771 to 775 mod, with that you can upgrade using cheap Xeon equivalents...Xeon x5460 3.12GHz 12MB cache cost around $45 dollars compared to q9650 3.0GHz 12MB @ $120
  5. I saw some stuff about that and looks like the best route. Thanks
