Yeah, I was actually kind of considering getting an X6 for my main rig (currently have an X4 955)...
955 is what I have as well and there seems to be nothing it cannot handle for now. It will easily last till my next platform upgrade (I'm still on DDR2) at which point it will either be BD or SB, and rumors haven't been very kind to BD so far.
If the OP can overclock his Q6600 to 3.0 GHz that should meet or beat the performance of the X4 955.
