Which is better value, Q6600 for c£130-150 or i7 920 for about £210? The q6600 seems to be selling a lot quicker than the 920. Both overclock very well.

The Q6600, because it works with cheaper S775 motherboards & cheaper DDR2 RAM, making it excellent overall value for money.

A Q6700 may be even better(?) value at £127 click here, (with free delivery courtesy of AVF-Scan click here). For the price, click on the 'BUY' link in the list - otherwise it's £3 extra.

If you opt for the i7 920, they have it for under £204 a little higher up. G

Thanks Crossbow, never thought about the Q6700. Strange that the q6600 sells out on ebuyer all the time but they have the q6700 in stock.

Indeed VNAM75, but I suppose it's because of the Q6600's sheer popularity!

Didn't know that eBuyer also reduced their price of the Q6700. G
