    I need some help to answer. I'm planning on getting a Q9550, if it comes out january 20 but I don't know which chipsets are supported. Anybody care to share their knowledge with me?

    I found that the previous Core 2 Quad processors supported the 975X, P965, X38, P35 and maybe others but I did not find any specifics for the new processor.

    EDIT : I just searched a bit more Inttel website and it says the following for the Q9550 :
    G33 Express Chipset,
    G35 Express chipset,
    P35 Express chipset,
    Q33 Express chipset,
    Q35 Express chipset,
    X38 Express chipset

    I don't think that's a complete list. I've read people talking about the X48.

    You also have to make sure specific motherboard models support it as well. MSI for example, has the QX9550 as "under testing" for X38 boards but "supported as of..." for P35 boards, and even then most P35's have the QX9770 as "no." It shouldn't be a problem in the long run, 'tho.

    I changed my mind. I'm not patient enough. I just ordered a new rig with a X38 chipset and a E6750.

    Just picked up a new Nforce 6 series mobo for my new pc, they didn't have the ram and monitor in stock, so hopefully they'll be coming in this Wednesday as promised.

    Curently I am running a P35, and I don't plan on changing for a while, This has everything I could want on it, with the exception of 2 X16 PCI express lanes.

    Probably none of those, my nforce4 board is still working fine, I'm not planning to upgrade in the time period of any of the current chipsets.
