I currently have also a X4 965be that does atleast 3.8ghz on 1.45v.

One is going in my gaming rig other in office rig.
If they're only .2 ghz apart, I'd go with the hex core, just so you can offload processes to extra cores (Maybe you feel like browsing the net between spawns )

Well most people will just say "games dont utilize more than four cores, so go with the more instructions per core option". But benchmarks aren't real life - in real life you have a ton of other crap open at the same time as your game, background processes if nothing else. I generally have around 60+ processes and 800+ threads running when I'm just watching youtube stuff and reading some news. So while you're gaming, all of that stuff is using those same cores.

Furthermore, most games aren't going to be CPU limited anyways, so you are better off with instructions per clock than with instructions per clock per core. As it gives you more leeway to handle background tasks before the game needs to wait on the CPU for a frame.

I was offered a used x6 the price difference would be 10-20 usd more.
According seller it does 3.6ghz 24/7 stable@1.4v and said had not tried to push it farther.

Looks like I'm just going to keep my X4 965be, sure the x6 is propably better put not by much it seems.
