Personally I took Q6600: 4 cores, more cache and huge potential for OC. Well the Phenom is not bad either but hey there are only Rs. 650 difference.

Me too prefer Q6600 over AMD Phenom II 720 BE.

With four processing cores, up to 12MB of shared L2 cache¹ and 1333 MHz Front Side Bus, the Intel Core 2 Quad desktops processor delivers amazing performance and power efficiency enabled by the all new hafnium-based circuitry of 45nm Intel Core micro-architecture.

Whether you're encoding, rendering, editing, or streaming HD multimedia in the office or on the go, power your most demanding applications with notebooks and desktops based on the Intel Core 2 Quad processor.

In short, Q6600 - 8MB L2 Cache - 2.40 GHz Clock Speed - 1066 MHz Front Side Bus

Re: Quad 6600 or Phenom II 720 BE ?

yeah, in fact I hesitate between this 2 is because:

with the Quad 6600, on a 1 monster O / C and 4 cores
with the Phenom II 720 BE on a good capacity O / C, 1 core less but with more technology to the next ...

Prices of 2 are also very attractive. I hesitate, I do not know ...

I believe that out of two, Phenom 720 BE II is best. Many people will ask me this question ...
