Obviously I play games. But, I do alot of encoding like video stuff. I PLAN to do alot of rendering in the near future (like 3D Modeling). I also fold too.

Im a mixed person, I do a little bit of everything. This is going on a 680i EVGA A1 board btw.

From looking at the above, it seems the Q6700 is a better choice unless someone can persuade me otherwise.
I think you answered yourself right there. Q6700

Q6700 definitely for your uses.

Q6700 is great at 3.6Ghz

When I get my 780i through I will have another stable OC

4 Cores are great.... I just couldn't even go back to a dual core. 4 Cores have yet to be fully used but its worth it.

Edit: I noticed you are going to have it on an eVGA 680i as well, see my sig rig

3.6 stable on the eVGA 680i A1

The main thing to determine is what you want to do with your computer. Are you going to primarily play games or encode video? Looking at things as they stand at this moment if you are a gamer, I'd say the Wolfdale (E-8400) has the edge due to its higher speed. But games are in development right now that are being written to take advantage of four cores, and at least one that I know of is already out that can utilize a four-core processor (Crysis). So if it were me I'd change the Q-6700 to either a Q-9300 or a Q-9450. That way, you get the 4 cores, plus you get the advantages of the new 45nm architecture. The Q-6700 and Q-9300 cost the same, or very close to it, and the Q-9450 costs about $70 more.

Hope this helped.
May i ask how 45nm is less futureproof?

he is saying Quad Cores are future proof because they haven't been fully integrated yet while C2Ds already have.

The question now is, do I get a Q6700 now or do I wait for like maybe a 45nm equivalent or a price drop?
