I was over at Fry's yesterday to pick up an eS-ata enclosure for my new media box and they were selling Quad 6600's for $189.

Tempting but I already have a Q9450 sitting in my living room :(

Not sure if this is at all Fry's, but the one in Austin definitely has it going on.

I'm looking at my weekly Microcenter flyer that just came in and I'm about crying what I could have saved if I bought at that store after building the rig in my sig. No, instead I support the local independent store because both MicroCenter and the little stores prices were on par. Now, just looking at the flyer(literally), I could have easily saved $100 by getting a price adjustment on my reciept being I just built the thing over the coarse of the week lol and several things now being on sale. $100 for us budget kinda guys would ahve allowed me to go E8400 or Q6600. :(

Oh well, little stores need help time to time(but dont we all in these tight times).

Yay, it looks like I just bought i the right time. :) I didn't even know about this deal, and I went to Fry's yesterday and picked one of these monsters up! :) It is a very good processor. I have it overclocked at 3.4Ghz right now just for a start and it is stable as a rock!

Damn!!! So tempting to get one of these. I was going to get a Q9450 or a Q9550, but at half the price it seems silly to pass up.

EDIT: F it, the trigger has been pulled. :D This 3800+ X2 has been holding me back for the past few months after I sold my FX-60. I can't wait to actually have a real pc again.

I am close to pulling the trigger... although I want speed over cores to the 8400 is a bit more tempting to me.

Well you double-posted so OBVIOUSLY dual-core is better for you.

If you quadruple posted, that would be a sign for quad-core :smoking:

:lol:

Ya...

I dunno... E8400's seem pretty good too for that price range.

Still, I got my Q6600 for $266 and I feel I got my money's worth. ;)

Well clearly not because now they are at 179.

Quad-FAIL.

What CPU? I am powered by a cat running on a treadmill. I have the most powerful computer ever.

That's 4 posts, I guess it's time to Quad core. :D

Thanks Nekro, let's hope everything goes smoothly with installation. I went XFX 780i because I need to have SLi but can't justify shelling out the dough for a 790i board.

790 + DDR3 a big waste of money. There is absolutly no reason to get DDR3 now.

Plus a entire new socket will be out maybe this year.

Oh yeah, well I bought my Q6600 for $630 11 months ago! Beat that suckas!!! AND it's a B3 revision which means it both runs hotter and overclocks poorer!!!! Yay me!! I'm so tempted to pick up a new Q6600 ... probably be able to get it to 3.6 eaaaasy. H2O FTW!
