    Q9550

    Hi all,

    So now intel has dropped prices 40% as Hexus says. How much will the new price of the Q9550 be for us consumers who will be buying one? I think I may upgrade my Q6600

    Re: Q9550

    Yes, the Q9550 drops to $316 which was the Q9450 price IIRC. I think I read somewhere that the Q9450 is being replaced by a Q9400 at $266 (aka Q9300 money, not quite sure where that leaves the Q9300 price wise)?

    Edit: Hexus article back up, no new price for Q9300 so presumably that means it's being dropped.

    Re: Q9550

    So I guess the question is... is it actually worth upgrading a Q6600 for one of these? Is putting on a 25% overclock going to be trivial?

    Re: Q9550

    Difficult but unless your desperate to change I wouldnt bother. i7 isnt that far away so personally I am saving my pennies for that rather than cahnging my Q6600.

    Re: Q9550

    Do you reckon £223 is as low as it will go on Scan for now, or will it drop further once Scan have run down their stock of Q9450s?
