None of the listed CPUs looks like a major upgrade over a Q6600 though.

If your staying with LGA 775, the best CPU you can get is the QX9650. Mine is mildly overclocked to 3.5 Ghz & it can be pushed easily to 4 Ghz. Since you already have a quad core, the improvement may not be that noticeable.

Finding a new one could be difficult. I bought mine used - no regrets.

Help me overclock my Intel Quad-Core Q6600
I've had an Intel Quad core Q6600 and just gave it a revamp with a good cleaning & new thermo paste. I'd like to try and overclock it to get more performance out of my computer. After 2 years, its not as snippy as it used to be. How do I go about doing this?
