Talking Question on quad cores

Recently, I was thinking about handing down my QX9650 processor to a buddy of mine who already has a q6600. I was wondering are there any real differences between the two besides the clock speed? If i overclocked his to 3 would there be any noticeable differences? He uses his pc for gaming and nothing else,any help is appreciated!

Well Fat Clown you may not have friends like him, but if you sent me that GTX 480 then you would be a friend like him

Thanks for the headsup, I think ill just take his 6600 and write qx9650 on the die in magic marker instead of giving him the real thing .
