AnandTech Bench (beta): AMD Athlon X2 6000+ vs Intel Core i5 750

Don't know how reliable it is but it's a start.

Two New Cut-Offs: Core 2 Duo E7300 and Pentium Dual-Core E5200 Processors (page 6) - X-bit labs

Another site to read up on. Long and short the x2 6000 has been passed by, even the x3 720 ($133ish newegg)is a better cpu.

The i5 750 deals that are floating around make it look like a better buy for the long haul. It's a real toss up x4 955 or i5 750 depends on price I guess, if I was in the market now I'd prob go i5 750..
