it depends what you goal is
you happy with 4.0-4.2 get e8400
you want 4.5 get e8600
i'm just waitin on cooler weather to clock mine to 4.8
i seen some duds some e8600 wont do 4.5
mine is good for 4.5 with 1.32v on load some need 1.4+
and the low vid chips get terribly hot
maximus IV extreme @ 5.1 1.41v

evga e760 +920 4.8 water5.0+ on phase linx stable
gtx285 tri-sli
dfi ut-p35 lt
e8600@4.6 1.38v
too much ram
