Cheapest price delivered from a reputable seller for this processor I believe, please correct me if I am wrong. Granted it is £104.99 but that is OEM, for an extra 99p you get the box and the HS&F much better buy IMO.

A few pennies cheaper

But then again, I trust novatech more due to better customer service.

30p cheaper after delivery + Novatech customer service is worth an extra £10 IMO.

is this better than a q6600?

]£101 @ Scan/todayonly, if you're eligible for free delivery.

It was just under £98 a couple of days ago on Scan/todayonly.

No, a bit 'worse' in a way in that it does not support Intel hardware virtualisation - a feature that's needed for 'XP Mode' in Win7 Pro & above for example.

Also in the way that it dont overclock too good and it is worse at stock 2.4ghz (q6600) vs 2.33ghz.

I'm not going to vote it cold, but I do think it's worth mentioning that eBuyer have this for £1 cheaper inc. delivery. It's pretty much just a normal price for the chip, so although it's a fairly decent deal in its own right, it's not really anything exciting enough to justify an impulse buy.

Not a great chip for the money, as posted the Q6600 or Q6700 will give you more bang for your buck at 400mhz with some DDR800 memory at 1:1

But for £141.99 (OCUK) you can get a Q9450 which was the last of the Core2Quad line, only beaten by the new i7, QX9650, & Q9550.

Worth the extra few quid IMHO.

That’s the older C1 stepping and it costs £150.90 with shipping and it’s an OEM chip so no heat-sink and only a 1 year warranty. Scan have the Q9550 on Today Only for £160.99. It’s a retail boxed CPU, has a faster clock speed, comes with a heatsink and 3 year warranty and more importantly it will very likely be an E0 stepping which offers better over-clocking and cooler running. Easily worth the extra £10 over your suggestion. :thumbsup:
