  • Q6600 and SSD or Q9450?

    Which would you suggest? Is the q9450 that much better than the q6600 (either would be oc'd)

    I'd say the 6600 and ssd certainly, though i really think you should go for the newer socket cpu's over 775?
    Proposed 3D gaming spec, to be built within 2months.

    Intel i5 2500k - Asus P8Z68 Pro - MSI GTX570 frozrIII - OCZ Vertex 3 60gb - Samsung F3 1Tb Raid1 - XFX 850w Black Edition - Razer Barracuda sound card - Acer GN245HQ 120hz 3D
    Thoughts via PM please?

      I'd get the SSD and the Q6600...Solid State is like a quantum leap in terms of PC performance...you'll notice that a lot more in your day to day PC use I reckon.

        That had crossed my mind, but with the funds available i'd need to strip and sell my existing system, then play the ebay lottery to come out with in 1156 i5 which isn't lightyears ahead of the q9450 tbh. I'm happy with my 775 system at the minute, just want to jump from 2 to 4 cores, otherwise the system's as fast as i need.

          some of the skt 775 stuff still sells for silly money on the bay, its still quite popular and useful to most people.
          Cpu would be a nice upgrade as would the ssd, tough one!

            Just to let you know I myself run a q6600@3.6 and a ssd for Windows boot but use a 1tb raid and at and it runs spot on even with a old 3870x2 bfbc runs excellent all on medium at 1680x1050

            Everyone was telling me to get an I5 upgrade but if like me you don't have the funds q6600,
            Lga775 is still a good CPU to have just have a Google search and you will see some good reviews .

              I'm using a qx9650 skt775 in my spare pc, it gets the same fps in games as my i7 930 skt 1366.

                  Thanks for the input guys, looks like the q6600 is the way to go (unless someone feels charitable with their q9x50 pricing).

                  I've made a wanted thread and hopefully should have enough left for the ssd

                    with your ram dude i would go for one of the 65nm quads as they would match up well as you will want some faster ram to get the most out of the 45nm cpu and unless you can get that for the same as you sell your current ram for its a bit of a waste to spend money on what is effectively a dead platform.

                      G0 stepping Q6600 and your board should make for a easy 3.6Ghz overclock provided you have a decent cooler. Add in the SSD and you will have a nice upgrade.

                          I would say the Q6600 and SSD, best upgrades in your situation I think
