Either the 6850 or the q6600. Incredible prices.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. They're both $266. I have a feeling the 6850 will be the better buy. What do you guys think?
Depends on what you do with your PC I guess. For *most* people dual core is more than enough, however some enthusiasts/professionals use software that takes advantage of massive multithreading...
Remember, you can always overclock the CPU, but nothing can be done to double the core count.
The Q6600 should have no problem overclocking to 3GHz+ anyway, so if given the choice I'd take the Q6600 over the E6850. You get the best of both worlds - excellent single and multithreaded performance. 8)
