A single Q6600 for sure. Higher clock, more cache, more cores, one system. You'll be using 50% less power while doing nearly twice as much work.
Once again...

Hi tangcoral,

The 3 Celeron D's will average per day in points about 100-110 and take 3-5 days each to complete WU's... The Quad will complete a SMP WU everyday and average 1,500 points per day or so.

So the 3 Celerons = 9,000 - 10,000 points per month.
Quad = 45,000 points per month or better, depending on your overclocks. If you run two instances of SMP on the Quad then the point totals will double.

As always the choice is yours. If your looking for points then the Quad is the only way to go. If your looking to build a farm.... use all of them. Remember also that each rig will consume some electrical energy. Depending on your cost per kilowatt hour, that also might influence your decision.

I hope this helped, :-)

go with the q6600 like others said and if you wanna do mutiple systems atleast get a e2180 or somthing thats dual core don't go with a single core console apps don't net very many points you need to run smp.
