Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q6600 (retail) for $179.99

Recommended Posts

My first post here. Wanted to christen it in style :)

 

Just ordered one and the total came out to be $186.92

 

Let me tell you folks, this is an unheard of deal. This puppy retails between $240 ~ $280.

 

Grab a sub $150 P35 mobo with 8GB DDR2 RAM and you'll have a monster workstation on budget.

how envy i am, here in argentina those chips are around 360 bucks, not even mention the difference between a dollar and argentinian money.

god damn it south america!

 

 

That difference has been steadily eaten by an inflation of about 20-30 per cent a year, with the exchange rate pretty much locked for years... From 2002 onwards, you can do the math. u$s 360 is probably less than half of what is was back then.

I think Q6600 @ 3.2G would be a optimum point for a production machine. To shoot it up to 3.6G or higher would generate more heat (not a good think for me as I am living in the hotter side of the globe). The practical speed gain would start plateau out before that point anyway.
