Yup. 9300 has a low multiplier so even with a very high FSB your CPU speed aint gonna be too high. The E8400 has a 9x multiplier so even with a pretty average FSB of 400Mhz it'll be at 3.6Ghz. At that price it's a absolute bargain!

EDIT: Just had a quick look. The Q9300 has a 7.5x multiplier. So @ 400Mhz FSB it would be only 3.0Ghz Also you do very little that would use all 4 cores.

EDIT: Your mobo won't work with Penryn quads anyhow, only Penryn Duo's

Tru dat! I got an extra 2000 points in 3DM06 going from an E6600 to this E8400. Nothing's coming close for the money.
