Get the Q6600 to 3.6ghz should be fine - but the higher it goes the faster your score.
The P35 motherboard isn't helping your score at all BTW

The quad is not a bottleneck at all. The bottleneck is the P35 chipset. Your second cards' pci-e lane is only running at x4 width which really bottlenecks a 4870.

My 2 HD3870's went from 17878 with quad at 3.96 on my P35 board in 3Dmark06 to 20033 with quad at 3.86 almost due only to the motherboard - and with a lower CPU clock also on my new X38 board

My board is brilliant - Asus P5E - but i would get the maximus as it has more temp sensors - then flash it [or mine] to the rampage bios and all the options work fine and you get all the overclocking options of a X48 Asus Rampage board.
