I know that, if they were both new it would be a no-brainer, but since the W3690 is used I'm kind of leaning towards the W3680, so that I'd have warranty.
I can get a used W3690 for the same price of a new W3680 (little less than 600)... Which one should I get?
Thanks for the suggestions!
Interesting, most people suggest the used one... Are these CPUs that reliable? What if it has been used on 100% load for years? I know it's not a car, but doesn't a CPU wear out a little due to heat? Plus the new one would have Intel's 3 years warranty...
So, it's new with 3 years warranty vs used, no warranty, but 0,13 GHz faster. In other words, peace of mind vs just a bit more power.
Like others, I'm not afraid of used CPUs. I'm more concerned with the seller, and would base the decision on that.
