Of these processor's what one would be the best to get and why. I do over clock and I will be using a Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3L that I have used in several computers already and it OC's really well and stable for the price. E8400, Q6600 or Q8200. I already know I already tested a Q6600 at 4.0GHz and was Orthos stable for 48hours straight.

If the Q6600 you own hits 4ghz stable then keep it and use it. If you are thinking of buying a new one, don't. The new CPU's have a VID of 1.3+ and are a pain to OC; get an E8400 instead.

Q6600 for the money, if you have decent cooling then you can hit 3.6ghz+. Don't spend over 200$ on a processor right now, with this technology transition.

I dont own the Q6600 it was a customer build. I am building a rig for my neighbor. So I should go with the E8400 over the Q6600?
