Q9550 is the best you can get without going QX.

I like my E8400, but bang for the buck may very well be this:

I would post but I would post exactly this.

That is completely NOT true. There is many quads that are getting higher clocks with the same cooler than the equal duo version and vice versa. It depends on the chip itself.

Were you thinking you'd get leaps and bounds better performance than your E6850 @ 3.6GHz? Because there won't be a huge difference between that and an E8xxx @ 4GHz to be honest. I haven't been suggesting that people go quads recently (since the tech is changing fast, new multi-core CPU's will be coming out soon, and the current quads are relatively old), but it might make more sense "upgrade-wise" to go with a quad.

E7200--Bang for buck, yes, but as an upgrade from his current CPU? No...

no. quads put out more heat. i can run my E6700 much much higher than i can run my Q6600. I dare you to find a 65nm quad that clocks higher than an E8400 on air.
