If you really wanna make sure you get a great one buy 15 of them and test all of them then sell the rest on ebay or something.
The sad part is, if i had that kind of money i would go through that trouble.
Its just not turning out to be the beast i though it was. I'm not expecting every chip to be good, but i don't feel like any chip should be BAD. This makes me want to get an E6850, which makes me vomit with decisions between Q6600 and E6850.
