Will you be overclocking. If not, I think you might be better off with the Phenom 9850 and a 790FX board
You've made me reconsider now... i'm not planning on overclocking so would this be a better combo than the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600? I went with Intel because of all the rave reviews i have read

The Q6600 does undoubtedly have better OC potential than the Phenom, but the 9850 at stock will perform equally or better than the Q6600, not only that, but the 790FX has much better CF support than the P45.
