Default Price check : Q9550

Question for you guys,

How much should a Q9550 C1 sell for? I see them on eBay routinely going for > $200. ???

Thanks

$150 for a cpu/ram/mobo combo is such a lowball. E8400's still sell for $80.

I've been searching high and low for a $150 920 D0 and have come up empty handed. :(

Maximum 100$ IMO. You can buy brand new some more powerfull CPU for 150$.

Yep like others said $100 maybe $120 if someone really wants a q9550. Somebody would have to be drunk and stone to pay $200 for it.

It is supply and demand. People who have Socket 775 boards who want to upgrade are willing to pay higher amount for an old CPU then to shell out for a new system and reinstall. I can still find Socket 939 FX-60 CPUs on ebay for $200 and that is an ancient chip compared to a 775.

Q9550 is a strange animal - it is few generations old, so it shouldn't cost more than modern cpus, but like mentioned above, it is among the highest cpus of the s775 generation, overclocks very well, so it could/should command more $ than you would otherwise justify.

And yes, I am rockin a Q9550 myself - No need to upgrade for me yet.
