If you're insanely rich, why not. If you're just rich then get e6600. Like lance said, it can OC to 6800 speeds easily. And then use the other half of the money you were gonna spend on the X6800 on more essential parts.

Actually I would reccomend getting the Extreme or waiting for "Kentsfield" which gives you a little more time to save up
