It seems like the Q8200 from Micro is cheaper than the Q6600 from the sites I look at. I like to keep my parts ~$100 and below unless it's not really possible.
Get the Q8200. For $130, that is really your best bet.

I will look around and see if I can find a better deal though.

EDIT: DAMN!!! intel CPUs are expensive.

I thought 775 sockets aren't worth it anymore, or so I have been told. However, it seems like this is the best route I can take. Hopefully my board doesn't die out, but Tigerdirect does have some decent 775 boards, just hope they don't sold out.

Anyways, I got the prices wrong. The Q8200 is $119.99, Q9300 is $139.99, and the Q9550 is $179.99. Micro Center said they have the lowest CPU prices, and they would also price match, even from sites like newegg. Which is nice.

Yeah, however, back then, I got my E7200 for $100, and the only one that came close to it in performance in similar price was the X2 6000+, and that was like $120. That's why I went with Intel.

EDIT - Somebody here wanted to buy my E7200, I forgot who though. Not sure if the person is interested in it anymore.
