Depends what you're doing. I usually have around 76-80 processes constantly
And the e6850 will still do you just fine, just overclock it like the others have suggested and you'll be fine. Heck, my e6750 is doing me just fine even. I have it overclocked to 3.54GHz (stock 2.66GHz), and no bottlenecks for me.
