if you are a die-hard AMD fan, then get the phenom 9750 or 9850. the q6600
is a substantially better overclocker. if you are not a big overclocker and are not going to be running benchmarks and photoshop all, there is not a tremendous difference at all.
if you are building a higher end system right now, intel is the better (meaning faster) choice. depends on how much you like AMD, i guess. i like them a lot. but not enough to buy a phenom (even though they are great processors...just not as good as intel's quads).
