Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600
Intel Core 2 Quad Go Q6600
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 "Energy Efficient SLACR 95W Edition"

Also is it better to go for a X48 or a X38 (guessing X48 but ill ask none the less)

Thanks for all the input guys its much appreciated :thimb:
These 2 are the same, and the one you want:

Intel Core 2 Quad G0 Q6600
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 "Energy Efficient SLACR 95W Edition"

The 2 different Q6600s from Intel's site:

http://processorfinder.intel.com/det...px?sSpec=SL9UM

http://processorfinder.intel.com/det...px?sSpec=SLACR


The popularity is basically because of the bang for the buck of the Q6600 especially when you consider overclockability and number of cores.

Thanks everyone for the posts. so which stepping is better the B3 or the Go?

by what people are saying elsewhere and this thread im guessing Go is better. As for Xfire, yes i have every intention of running 2 cards, but im holding out for the HD4800 series from ATI so the board i get i want to hndle cross fire well. from what i read the DFI and the P5E Asus seem to do a good job but will the x48 do a better job? if so is the proce/performance ratio compared to a DFI/P5E worth the extra money?

That I think is the decision you have to make whether you go ASUS or DFI. I have always used DFI there are plenty of Threads to help you out, should you need help
