    Re: News - Intel drops prices of quad core CPUs by up to 40%

    I was planning on making the jump to i7 but at that price i would have to think about it the Q9650 would replace my Q6600 for around 12 months as i doubt that there would be any benefit speed wise with the i7920 over the Q9650 but it would be a nice price for the Q9650 which is a monster chip that i should think would get to 4ghz no problem and i should think is faster than the bottom of the range i7920.

    Id be interested to hear peoples views on this as the upside of sticking with the 775socket is i can still use my high end asus board and my 8gig of ram am i going to see any benefit with the i7 over the 775.

    how about if it was:

    PII 920 - £155.78
    PII 940 - £187.42
