K so I was using a laptop with a less-than-decent pentium 4 530 @ 3.0 GHz. It died about a week ago. I have all the parts for a new desktop and I was going to build it in January when the Q9450 comes out but now I am forced to build early. At the moment I'm going to be using the P4 in my new build for the next while until I get my hands on the new processor. If anyone has an LGA775 processor lying around, preferrably a dual core, please post here and we can bargain a price.
