Summary: I have a motherboard that can handle a processor compatible with an LGA 775 socket. After some research and comparison I have discovered that this processor is the most powerful. I also compared with the core i7 of my laptop through the website cpubenchmark and I was surprised to see that actually...
Best 775 socket CPU you can buy. Runs everything we've thrown at it and we are gamers...

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.
Summary: Socket LGA 775 processors are becoming expensive because the LGA775 is being outdated. That being said, I absolutely love the processor. Its 45 nm keeps it cooler than the 65 nm q6770 processor and under my system, its under a heavy load.
Summary: For just $124 delivered (used), this processor was a bargain! In technology years, my old Shuttle SG33G5M system, which I built in 2007, is a dinosaur. Even so, I wasn't ready to kick it to the curb, so I decided to upgrade with a new CPU, more memory, an SSD, and a new fan to replace the original...
Summary: The Q9650 was just what I needed to upgrade my computer so I could stream TV shows and movies to my television. The processor came in an anti-static plastic case. It also came with a lifetime warranty! The seller included 2 syringes of thermal grease and a personal note. Nice touch!
Summary: Still a monster today. I have owned this CPU since 2009, OC'd to 3.3 using an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7. It has been running pretty much 24/7/365 since then and still holds its own in late 2014. Would I do a new build with it today? Maybe, maybe not...depends on what I need and why I need it.
Summary: This was delivered on time and included a new CPU heatsink and fan. It installed on my Dell desktop computer with no hassles and no difficulties. The upgrade cost from Dell to install this CPU on my system was almost $600.
Summary: Although this processor is out of date, it still packs plenty of punch, and can compete well with the newest chips. If you're not sure whether to update or upgrade, then just ask yourself, what do I need, and what am I willing to spend?
