Default 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'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 ) for ~$150, when you can buy a new one with warranty for $170? Either way..GL

Funny thing is at some places they sell the E8400 more than the Q6600. 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


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.
