Summary: I've been running the Q9650 since 2009, and currently run Windows 7 Professional (about to upgrade to Windows 10). Seven years later, and with a few upgrades to my hard drive and GPU, my custom machine is still flying along.

Summary: Works great. The people I bought this from sell great products at wonderful prices. This is the fastest standard 775 socket cpu made (excepting that terrible over-prices custom "production" overclocked affair). It breathed new life into an aging 775 socket system and runs super fast.
