850 is more than enough
is that CPU of yours (Q9650) is E0 stepping?
most sources say it will be compatible with x58/LGA1366
All Q9650's are E0, I believe!
all q9650 is all E0 stepping.. then, it is a great news for me..
i think, it's time for me to upgrade my CPU.. has been using this e8500 for more than 1year already..
your beliefs do not deceive you...
grab at it , they're cheaper now. although q9550's might be all e0's now too. you will just have a lower multi.
Why is the Q9550 E0 and C1 but the Q9650 is only E0?
just get it, you know you want it. it doesnt matter if you need or not.
New Intel Extreme Edition chips will likely cost in the ~$900+ USD range. Search for an Intel Core i7 975 now and you wont likely see one for much less then ~$1000 USD. The same will likely hold true for the Intel Core i9.
Right now, many people can buy an Intel Core i7 920 for ~$199.99 USD (Microcenter) and a few entry level X58 motherboards can be had for approximately ~$169.99 (Microcenter too). I sincerely doubt that an Intel Core i5 750 would come in significantly under ~$199.99. In fact the MSRP will likely be inflated by retailers / e-tailers in the first few weeks and months. I also sincerely doubt that P55 based motherboards will be significantly lower then ~$169.99 after rebate or otherwise and again, inflated prices are likely.
As for the price difference between RAM for the i7 and the i5. Well, technically there is no difference.
for me, better gets straight to q9650 than q9550..
Ok I will go for the i7 920 D0:banana:
Any suggestions for x58 mobo
Asus Rampage II Gene (215euro)
Asus P6T (220euro)
Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 (240euro)
Asus P6TD Deluxe (265euro)
Deluxe or UD5
but like UD5 better
UD5, you wont regretted. A very nice Mobo.
Not sure how your install will go, as everyones is different, but my install when flawlessly.
Everything booted, except I had the ram in the wrong slots, lol.
What about the Asus Rampage II Gene I have see some review with very good OC results.
I've gotten 4.5ghz out of this board so far.
4.3GHz with the 920 C0
What is the difference between GA-EX58-UD4P and GA-EX58-UD5?
heck i run any game at 1080p on my little 2 core 8400. but most games i've played make use of my gpu than my cpu anyway, gta 4 is the only game i have that gets no more than 30fps whic is smooth enough for me.
DFI UT X58 T3eH8
info about overclocking with that mobo
EDIT: All you need to know
far as i can tell
its got better heatsinks and 2 more sata ports.
The LGA 1156 i7's are merely overclocked i5's with HT support. You have to go 1366 to get a true i7 with triple channel DDR3 support.
