To the OP: If you aren't a total cheapskate: get an Intel, overclock it, and be happy.
I think mine can hang with yours if i oc it to 3.2ghz, i dont oc though.

My e6300 is currently at 3.1GHz. I doubt that yours could hang with mine at these speeds.

Hmmm, how many points can you get in 3dmark06? A 6000+ stock @ 3ghz gets about 2231, so mine @ 3.2 would get somewhere around 2400, which is 132 less than a E6850 stock at 3ghz.

your right for sure.. that 3600+ Brisbane system was nice, but even @ 3.0ghz it didn't stand a chance to my friends e6600 system or my e4300 system in Benchmarks, and I used almost the same stuff...

My x2 6400+ was slightly less than your e6300, and I bet it can beat it, once I OC mine a little more after i get my new PSU.
