i was thinking the Q6600 and overclock it, but everyone seems to not like this current batch.

i checked newegg, they were out of stock on the Q6700, so i went with the Q6600.

i might regret it, but i figured, i have never overclocked anything, so i think if the q6600 reached about 3ghz that would be plenty. for my use, even the stock would be enough right??
lets see what happens, i should be happy with it.
but should i make sure about the vid with you guys before i open the box?

The Q6600 will be great for video editing even if you don't overclock.
