Well even if you can hit 4.0GHz+, the Q6600 will be better. The E6850 will have a capping limit to it's speed so running the Q6600, you'll be able to get it to 3.6GHz+ and it will probably even surpass the E6850. And I'm pretty sure you can get the Q6600 to 4.0GHz+ with a very good cooling system.

No the E6850 will OC higher if both are given the same cooling but the quad core might be more beneficial for a long term purchase and some games like crysis that will supposedly take advantage of quad core.

Q6600, its Quad Core, enough said.

Ooo i changed my mind.

Forgot about the support for Quad Cores.Were there is support, as youd expect. Double as quick as the other.
However, Without going IntelExtreme the E6850 Wins over on just about everything.

I was just wondering, howcome with the E6750 being better than the E6700, its cheeper ?
