Default Cheap Quad Cores: AMD X4 9600 99 and Intel Q6600 126

AMD is the first to drop under the magic 100 mark, selling its Phenom X4 9600 for a mere 99. This is a B2 stepping 2.3GHz part, but nonetheless the price is impressive. For 25 less, you'll get one core less as the X3 8450 clocked at 2.1GHz now costs just 73.90.

Intel is offering its legendary Q6600 for as little as 128 these days and the Q6700 for 158. If you're after new 45nm parts you won't spend a fortune either. The 2.5GHz Q9300 costs 185, while Intel's latest addition to its quad core family, the Q8200 is listed at 177 but it will probably end up even cheaper once it becomes available. mid=35
