Well, they are preety much the same processor at the same clock, since they're the same chip, same cache. The only thing that warrants that price is the unlocked multiplier and the fact that the X6800 should be able to go MUCH MUCH higher overclocked than 3Ghz. You will obviously need some serious cooling...
due to the higher multiplier, the X6800 wont need excessive FSB speeds.
especially since its unlocked on all (Q)X****
Which is exactly what sells them. Most serious overclockers like to keep their RAM at least 1:1 or higher for optimal speeds and if you have an unlocked multi your CPU speed is no longer limited by your RAM or FSB.
