Default Q9550 - 250$ and free shipping

From NCIX. I bet someone already spot it, but hey, here it it is.

NCIX.com - Buy Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Quad Core Processor LGA775 2.83GHZ Yorkfield 1333FSB 12MB Retail Box - BX80569Q9550 In Canada.

I would buy one if I had a good reason to build another rig (I already have some spare parts laying around...).

Don't feel bad lam I paid $389 plus tax and shipping for mine and that was when our dollar was at or near parity. It looks like NCIX is just trying to clear out what they have left in stock, by now I suspect that most will end up with EO steppings.

Great price thats for sure.

C1 chips (that's what I got) but they are pretty decent: 3825mhz on 1.295vcore/1.3vtt
