$700 for an extra BIOS function? No thanks....

The max clock of a e6600 will be comparable to the max clock of a x6800.

I wasn't saying its better, but it does have that option. I forgot the other advantage though... oh well. You could just get a e6300 now and sell it, its a cheap solution and atleast youll have a good rig for now.

But to help answer your question. What are you going to be using this computer for? Are you going to be doing stuff that will be multi threaded and use 4 cores? Or would an overclocked 6600 or 6700 be enough. Or are you just wanting to get the biggest and best computer possible? If you really need quad that I suppose go ahead and get it, otherwise a 6700 will be plenty.

Get the E6600 because the multi wont help you on air which i presume you are going to get. I mean i think the X6800 and the OX6700 are both overkill right now the price perfomance ration is bad. This way you can save money for future upgrades like a fall refresh when the "true" quad cores come out.

Ubkess you are a heavy mulitasker you wont even know the difference between a E6600 @ 3.5 than a QX6700
