  1. Um... the Q9550.....

    Both are god, but the Q9550 is better since it is a higher stock clock, uses a 45nm process and has better IPC.
  2. The Q6600 is/was a great quad core CPU, the Q9550 is better, it all depends on what you're willing to spend and if you're willing to overclock. it also depends on what you'll be using the CPU for, is it for gaming, video encoding, etc...

    Also, when will likely be the next time you upgrade platforms from LGA 775 to LGA 1156/1366?
  3. I have one of each, both running at the same speed. I f I had to pick one, it'd be the Q9550.
