Depending on the quality of your motherboard I wouldn't waste the cash on a 6000+ if I were you. If it were me I'd spend much less on a 3600+ and try to clock it as close to 3.0Ghz as possible.

I assume you want a 6000+ because your mobo is pretty OC limited, so maybe the 6000+ is your best bet. You could get another mobo and OC a 3600+ for less than a 6000+. Just a thought.

As dubz said, you can get a 3600+ and a mobo for less than a 6000+. The 3600+ and Biostar Tforce 550 mobo are a great combo and most people are getting at least 2.8GHz. It would be more expensive if you were hoping on a SLI board, but are you really going to get another 8800GTX??
