Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 560 - Worth Upgrading?

I got a 9550 on amazon
Amazon I believe is easier to deal with just make sure you get the replacement policy I went through 2 before I found a good one from a different vender than the first vender that sent 2 bad ones :) Buying Choices: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Processor 3.0 GHz 12 MB Cache Socket LGA775

Ah, an even better idea than I had. I'd much rather buy from Amazon than eBay.

The price is better too. When I looked at Amazon, the price was $469 CDN, which is pretty steep. Granted, the CPU was brand new, but jeez...

Megahertz07 - Ah, sorry! The mods for the Sims adjusts what EA/Maxis "doesn't" allow you to do when playing the game. When you get some mods, they can be on a website that will take you to another website, where you can download them. But you can download the file immediately or might have to wait for 5 secs then the file to download the mod will show up. Most of the time, you'll get a pop up or an ad that won't let you "leave page" or close it.

Mellon Head - Awesome, thank you so much! Yeah, I can do that. I attached of photo of the processor I have.. I think I have... If I didn't, I'm sorry. But if you tell where to find it, I can let ya know! Thank you for looking!!

Thanks again guys!

Just to show a bad and good cpu or what I said was bad is here
The left core temps were so different it was weird to me
The good one on the right shows only a 4c temp difference which is the one I finally kept :)
All 3 9550's worked but only the last was in my mind normal or should be normal
