I've seen QX6850's go for around the same price as the Q9550. Now if i remember the QX6850 is 65nm? But has less of a L2 cache

So what would you choose? I'm planning on having the CPU liquid cooled btw.

Where did you see that kind of price on the QX6850? It's over a $1000 everywhere I looked.

How much will E0 stepping affect overclocking the CPU?

And do you have high performing 2 X4gb DDR2 kits? That are also cheap? I read in another thread the AVAdirect guys saying it's easier to overclock
