Hi

I'm planning to build my own workstation but I don't know which processor I should choose, a Q6600 or a X3330.

Currently the Q6600 costs € 165,- and the X3330 is priced at € 188,04 . So which wil give me the best bang for the buck?
I'm planning to overclock them a bit, but I don't know how far the X3330 will go.

I hope you guys can help me :)

Thanks in advanced!

Well the Q6600 is known for its OCing potential. Easy OC to 3Ghz. But the X3330 is a 45nm quad so it may be a better choice since it has SSE4.1 and such.

Personally I would go with the Q6600 and up it to 3GHz and be set.

I have also the option to buy a X3370 (the xeon version of the Q9650) for € 269,89, but is it worth the extra € 100,- when I will overclock them?

I never heard of that, what are memopry prefecters? And will that have a big effect? (positive or negative?)
