Default NCIX price drops on intel processors!

NCIX has adjusted their prices. I just did an impulsive buy and bought a Q9550.

I saw the price drop earlier and the Q9650 is almost double the price of the Q9550. I'd go with the Q9550 but I can't justify putting out over $300 for a processor.

Man...those are good prices.

Still, I don't think I could do much better than my current chip with any of those, so I'll probably spend on something else.

Well I got the Q9550 Installed and I like the temps. In speed fan it says my CPU goes down to like 19C idle. Load is 41 or something with one orthos. At 3.655 GHZ right now with onlt spending less then a minute on overclocking it.
