The Q6600 is a great CPU for overclocking. it is also low priced. Do you plan on overclocking it?

are you just buying a processor to upgrade what you have or are you building a whole computer?

If you're not going to be overclocking, you might want to look at the Q8200 or Q8300, instead, because they have a higher FSB speed.

If you don't know what overclocking is, you probably shouldn't be doing it. It is raising the speed above what the component(s) is/are rated for. Googling it and reading the wikipedia article may help you.

Yes, those are what I recommend to people who aren't going to be doing heavy overclocking.

If your not overclocking, i reccomemend a core 2 duo. It ia faster at stock and since your a kid, you won't need to use multi threaded programs.

this should more than effiecient and cheaper
