2nd place would be the qx6800 because its harder to get ur hands on, plus it is not as worth it because for 100$ less u can get the qx6700 and oc it to 2.93 ghz and still have the unlocked multipier

3rd : intel core 2 extreme x6800
4th: intel core 2 quad q6600

Pretty silly question.

If money wasn't a part of the equation most people would take the most expensive chip.

A better question would be, "If money wasn't an object, what components would you use to build an insane PC."
