in many cases, it depends on the application, but its a 200 mhz difference, I would go with the q6600 quad core. It is a good CPU, and you can overclock it to 2.6 easily if you have an single or dual core application that absolutly needs that extra 200 mhz, though I doubt that will be the case-most programs these days are quad core certified, I would definetly go with the quad.

Which is best really depends on what you're running. Not many games utilize all four cores, even some AAA titles. In that case, the dual's faster clock speed would give a slight speed increase. With only 200 MHz. between the two, there really won't be much difference aside from price.
