Hey trezegol13, Very few can hit 4.0 with the 6850. If you're gaming the E8400/E8500 would be much better for you. If you can afford it get the E8500, you're most likely to hit 4.0+ with it.
As far as why 3D mark06 are different, what multi/FSB were you running for each? Was your 8800 Oced? Did you try running it several times? It could be many things. Like if you switched CPUs did you reformat when you switched? Did anything else change? It could be many things.
