Intel Q8400 Motherboard Comparison!

I came across a MB on Craigslist and I'm wondering what you guys thought of it? I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computer hardware so any input would help, thanks?

Hi savatreatabvr,

That CPU is pretty old technology now a days, the old quad cores were good in their day, but even lower end budget cpu's now will out perform them, as for the motherboard, I have never heard of Lanparty so cannot comment.

What is it that you want to know exactly? Are you thinking of buying them to replace your current motherboard and cpu? I suppose the Q8400 would peform maybe 50-60% better than what you have now, but if I was you I would save towards some of the new technology.

Paul.

You're right, I don't know enough about computer hardware to buy used stuff. I'll take your advice and save some money. Thank you!
