A x6800 is better for most games now a QX6700 is better for SupCom and future games that take advantage of 4 cores.

Personally, if you want a quad core CPU, I would just wait for the 45nm's.

SupCom supports 4 now. Alan Wake is inbound, other than that. Not many. Few games even support 2 cores. Still, if you can wait do what jAk said and go for the new 45nm units. If not, a nice Core2Duo should handle any game for the next year or two. All you'd need to worry about is the video card.

I would have to say the QX6700 myself. It's more future proof. If you want a dual core CPU then get the E6600 or E6700 save the money and overclock slightly. Should hit 2.93GHz with stock voltage. The price premem for the X6800 simply not worth it. The QX6700 is worth it as the FSB for quads can't overclock that well so the unlocked multiplire is more improtent.

I actually think the q6600 is the best buy when it drops in price.

Just my own .02.

What do you mean by that?

Why would they market the q6600 as a quad-core processor, if it doesn't have multi-core support?

But I guess I could be thinking of something else.
