E6850 or Q6600

E6850 is 3 gig out of the box which means it could be overclocked to 4 easy? If it can i would have no problem buying it and waiting for independent quad core processors.

Anyone have an opinion?

The E6850 will most likely not overclock any better than the E6700. Go with the Q6600 if you have good cooling available.

Pretty good. You should be able to hit 3.7-3.9 on that setup. I personally am going with the Q6600. With your setup, you could hit 3.6 with the right motherboard and water block.

IMHO, Q6600 @ 3.6 GHz > E6850 @ 3.9 GHz

If you're a gamer the higher clocked Duo is going to be better for frames per second than the slower Quad.

some benchmarks of the new CPUs by anandtech. Shows the E6850 is faster in games and slower in rendering. Hope everyone knows that already. Here are some numbers:

there is ups and down with both cpu's . with a new p35 and some good ram , you will have some high fsb on your oc . but q6600 will be more future proof and they oc well with new GO stepping on p35 chipset . e6850 has a higher multi which mostly means higher oc's . the new dx10 games should use 4 cores alot more as does vista and newer software .

i can't wait to get ahold of a q6600 GO . i wish i new i would get GO i would order right now .

You guys do realize the e6850 has the same multiplier as the q6600 right?

Don't ask why unless you want to join them.
If you can deal with the heat and have a quad ocable mobo then get the q6600, same multi and same stepping as the e6850 if you get a good q6600.

I am a gamer at heart and I've decided to go with the E6850 myself b/c as of right now there is a significantly much larger performance boost in gaming with it over the q6600. I can wait til Jan for the new and much improved quads. Right now to me they are still not worth it and boy do they run hot. Crysis will still run very well with dual core and a good gfx card.
