That's the best processor up under $200. I bought the 3000+ instead of the 3200+, cause you can easily OC the thing to 3200 speeds without aftermarket cooling. It's like a 6.6% increase in performance for a 30% increase in price, so you know where I'm coming from...

System Specs:
Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

I got the 3000+ also. I also easily overclocked it to 2.4Ghz with the stock heatsink and fan. I'm getting a 28 degree Celsius idle temp as I'm sitting here typing this. I could easily go higher, but 2.4Ghz is plenty for me right now. The 3800+ runs at 2.4Ghz and retails at $323 on Newegg. The 3000+ is $146 on Newegg. That's a savings of $177, so do your research, learn to overclock, and save some money.
