WTB: E8400 or reasonable 45nm Quad
 
Wondering what prices i can get for one of these cpus. I may be buying a new mobo and would like to get a good, overclockable processor for a reasonable price.

I'll take a used one for cheap if someone has one. I am supposed to be saving up for school next year.

Where in AB are you, did you check out
Intel Core?2 Duo Processor E8400 3.00GHz w/ 6MB Cache at Memory Express Computers
I know you wanted used, just thought I would show you this, in case you have not seen it yet.

I'm afraid that you aren't gonna get one for cheap. Anybody who's getting rid of, say, an E8400...had probably owned it for several months(when they were $200 or more). I highly doubt that they are gonna sell it for cheaper than the "new" lowered prices that Intel just applied. Why buy one used (and abused :bleh:) for ~$150, when you can buy a new one with warranty for $170? Either way..GL :biggrin:

i managed to get a used Q6600 for 100.00 from buy/sell last week, keep looking bud never know what ppl have for sale ,

I would just buy a new 8400 or 3110, they are pretty cheap.

Funny thing is at some places they sell the E8400 more than the Q6600.:haha: You would be better off getting the quad. But thats just my opinion.

Get a E8400 on NCIX and price match it to 169.99 from DirectCanada, the best price you will get, I just bought my E8500 for 225$ Express shipped :thumb:


Q6600 is a 65nm.

Not true, there isn't that much Quad Core application available, and if it used for gaming, a Dual-Core will be more than enough. For multi-tasking, the Quad core is the way.

We don't know if you got yourself a CPU, or just gave up on the idea, but.. here's a member selling his E8400...you should check it out. GL:biggrin:
