I know this CPU is not widely available in the USA …yet , but I’ve read reviews and thought it was a great CPU

I am going for a major upgrade and was about to get Q6600 , then I found the E8400 to be better for gaming , right ?

The Q9450 is not yet released and that was what I want but for the price I found the E8400 selling for , I think I am gonna get it

E8400 prices range from 194.5$ to 220$ which is awesome IMO .
Should I go for it for that price or wait for the Q9450/Q9550 ?

Newegg have q9450 two days ago but it gone right after this with cost $399.99. Now they only have q9300 $300. If you want e8400, Fry’s have e8400 + ecs gf7050vt-m motheboard = $219.99 today.
I am too want to go with q9450 but with the price at this present, i rather go with e8400

E8400 OEM available at newegg.com as I type this at $199.

If you plan to overclock, a third party HSF added make a perfect combo.

I may put my hands back in my pocket for this one.

E8400 Retail 3yr warranty compared to 1 yr for OEM ( NO HSF ) would not use stock hsf anyways since these chips overclock like hell … Unfortunately most places are out of stock should be released in a week or 2 ?? if you can’t wait , get a XEON E3110 , identical chip needs less v and overclocks just as well
