No Q9450 will be coming to this store or any stores from what I can gather. This store has lots of Q6XX units. For some reason I had not even looked at them at all. From what I can read the only difference in the 9400 vs 9450 is the L2 cache is smaller. I remember reading somewhere that L2 cache is not as important anyway?? I do not think that I can afford a Q9550 right now. Would I have to worry about GPU bottlenecks with a Q9400?
