from completed build Budget Optiplex Gaming Rebuild
It has 4 cores, which is good. Useful for multi-tasking. They have been pushed past 3.0 GHz, so it is good for overclocking. They go for cheap used, or around $20 USD. I see no problems with this processor for browsing the web and other usual tasks, but for gaming the clock speed hurts it. Not bad for its price and has aged well. Opt for the SLACR models, since these came out later and use less power. Only 4 stars because of its clock speed, everything else works fine.

from completed build Blast from the past!
From seeing reviews and using a Core 2 Quad at home (though not a Q6600) I can tell you that for basic tasks and some light/older gaming these CPU's are still fine and even do a pretty decent job at it
