Whilst Nehalem has well and truly taken over now in the performance/enthusiast market segments, LGA 775 (Core 2) is still a very capable and attractively priced platform that fairs well in todays market.

 

Some of you with LGA 775 systems in need of a CPU upgrade might be interested to know Intel plans to release another new Core 2 Quad processor into its lineup next month (January 17 to be exact), this dubbed the Q9500.
