Are you overclocking? If yes, Q6600. If not, Q8200.

Raw power and overclock ability = Q6600. If you're going to only run at stock - then probably the 8200.

I'm biased - Q6600 is a no brainer OC - 3 Ghz without breaking a sweat. More if you want to push it with a good after-market cooler.

As said, Q6600 is excellent at overclocking.

However, if you are not planning to OC then go for the Q8200 because its quieter, uses the newer 45nm, and because of this runs quite cool too.
