    Default Will my PC be able to run this CPU?

    Hey all! Been drooling around on some processors these days, and saw the Q9650 3.0Ghz x4 Thats insane, but I wonder if this monster can work in my computer?

    I have the
    - GTX 260 : http://uk.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=...34&modelmenu=1
    - 550W Corsair : http://corsair.com/products/vx/default.aspx
    - Asus P5Q SE : http://uk.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=...46&modelmenu=1

    Thanks for answers. (hopefully)

    Nou need more power. Get something stronger and you seem to be fine.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    they will both work but youll need more power for both if your looking for more power just overclock that baby. your E8400 should be able to keep up in most games, the Q6450 is just 2 E8400's stuck together

    Why got for a 9650 when you can get a 9550 for 200 less? Just seems stupid imo!

    Much better idea!

    I don't think the 9650 at 3.0ghz is worth an extra 200 over the 9550 at 2.83ghz so your doing the right thing.

    Pressurized bought the 9650 and I thought that was pointless but he insisted on buying it for some unknown reason...

    simple reason: multipliers, you can overclock more with the same fsb to keep your memory in its limits. not sure if its worth 200 though
