VID's are basically the voltage required for the chip to run at stock speeds. This isn't always true, but generally, the lower the vid, the better the chip will overclock.

Uhhh why wouldn't it be compatible? But if you are doing nothing but gaming (no video editing or number crunching) go for a E8500 instead.

those things are insane, while a Q8200 prolly wont get past 3-3.2ghz on max volts.

any Q6600 poops all over the Q8200, those just need to die
Sorry but I felt like correcting this statement. The Q8200 is 45nm, so it will run 3.6Ghz anyway... granted that your mobo will reach 515FSB (with a quad!) it WILL do 3.6Ghz. However, the only mobo that will do 500 or just over 500 with a quad would be the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P.

The Q6600 is easier to OC because of the x9 multi, so it would be the best choice.

If you're just gaming, I'd recommend something in the e8X00 series, like octogon said.

Read through the links in my sig to get familiar with overclocking.
