If its a processor bought from microcenter (microcenter.com or the store) its manufactured from IPSG, its cheap, is there going to be anything wrong with the processor?

Well...it seems that they use Intel CPUs in their business...which is being a boxmaker (e.g., Gateway, Dell, et alia).

Nothing to worry about.

thx louis, but what i mean is that they produce their own processors, is cheap , so is there anything wrong with the processors that they produced by themselves?

1 more question...
since their price is so low...
Q6600 is the same price as a E8400 ...
which one is better? Quad 2.4 or Duo 3.0?

I'm sure they don't produce their own. They might buy a batch and re-brand them. They might get a deal on Intel's or AMD's "seconds"

I thought that I made that clear...if you bother looking at their home page, you will see that they do NOT make CPUS.

They are boxmakers, they just put sytems together...using parts that you and I would be able to use if we decided to put one together.

A name is only a name. If they have an agreement with Dell or Intel that they can put their name/logo on a product used in assembling a system, that's OK with me.

Since you seem to be the one asserting that they make processors...can you post a link to one?
