Q9300 vs. Q6600

If the percent price of the Q9300 is greater than the average percent advantage, then buy the Q6600. If the percent price is less than the average percent advantage, then buy the Q9300.

Example.
Comparing the prices will depend on where your going to buy either processor from and whether OEM or retail So lets say Ill buy it at clubit, this does not include shipping. Now unfortunately clubit does not have the Q9300 yet, so I will use the price from costcentral on google.
Q6600 OEM: $239.99 (Clubit)
Q9300 OEM: $289.99 (CostCentral on google)

Ok so the average percent advantage the Q9300 has over the Q6600, from the chart posted above is about 6.66% .. So now the Q9300, using the above prices, costs about 20.8% more than the Q6600, So the cost percent is more than the percent advantage, so at least using these prices and the chart above the Q6600 is the better buy..

You could use this math to figure out a purchase for any product.

Of course there are still many factors we have not considered, including but not limited to power consumption, oveclocking ability and motherboard/software support.
Q6600 Still the better buy for all the direct comparisons I have seen. Especially in overclockibility.

So you think Q6600 or Q6700 will be a better choice?

in the one chart I have seen. The Q9300 is about 6.66% better on average than the Q6600, but the Q9300 won't overclock nearly as well as the Q6600.
But I DO include prices when I compare. So the Q9300 is about 20% more than the Q6600 but only averages 6.66% improvement.

So I still say the Q6600 is the better choice.

The 6700 will generally overclock roughly as high as the 6600. But instead of doing 400x9, you -might- get 400x10 but most likely it'll only end up stable around 360-370x10. Another thing to remember is that the smaller the die process becomes, the less overall percentage of overclock you are going to be able to get. The 6600 can easily run at a 50% overclock, you arent going to get more than 30-40% of an overclock out of the 45nm chips.

edit: GET OUTTA MAH HEAD STE!!!
