OC a Wolfdale E8400 or better yet an E8600 (They cost $100 more but OC much easier to 4.1GHz and higher.).

Wolfdale E8400 $164.99:

Wolfdale E8600 $269.99:

QX9650 Yorkfield $1,029.99:

Screw getting (or get screwed) a 9650 for $1,029.99. And stick with the most road tested platform ever. The LGA775!

Look what money you can save OCing: (Identical Systems with OCed Wolfdales versus stock 9650s)





And there are six pages of just OCing Benchmarks for Wolfdales.
