Hello my friend asked me a question to ask you.

He has an E6420 which he can sell for 120 euros. Someone is offering him a QX6700 from a Dell for 300 euros.

Should he go for it?


The warrarnty etc


is it worth an extra 180 euros?

cheers

I'd rather go with a new Q6600.

Still a good price for a used QX6700. (Specially for Europe)

I wouldn't trust a Dell OEM chip to be a great clocker either.
