The X6800 will be better for current games because of its higher clock speed, but for any program that can use more than two cores the QX6700 is tops.

I suggest the QX6700. Multithreading is becoming more and more common.

Why do you need the best cpu?

You can get almost as good for a fraction of the price. :wink:

QX6700 actually has around 50% advantage in some tests over the X6800


Somehow I think quad core is overkill for this guy. If he has to ask about which is better, then quad core isn't for him. And I doubt he's doing any heavy rendering. Again... same logic.
