Q6700 or E8600? That is the question.

I want to overclock and am having trouble with my Q6700 processor, it wont go past 3ghz without crashing the computer. I use the computer mainly for gaming and watching the odd blu-ray so multiple programmes is not an issue. I am wondering if an E8600 dual core would be as good as the Q6700, what the benefits of Quad over Dual are etc.

All advice greatly received, thanks

Dagger.....I noticed you are running a Q6600 at 3.6ghz, I have a Q6700 and cant get above 3ghz without a system crash, how do you manage it?

Thanks

Settings:
9x multiplier, 1.45 vcore, 1600mhz fsb, no chipset voltage increase, ddr2 800mhz, 1:1 ratio.

That's basically it.
