Default I wouldn't buy this last night

when it was $999.99...but today...I'm thinking bargain!

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 Kentsfield 3.0GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail



j/k....you could get a cheap car, couple cases of beer, and a Q6600.

Default Re: I wouldn't buy this last night

i dont remember who it was on here, but he had his qx6700 @ 4.7, and he said it barely made a diff when he had it back to 3. something.
So getting a q6600 @ 3.2-3.6 is good enough and great for the price.
