Here are some facts for you Gymmy,

Wood has about three times the thermal conductivity as fiberglass batts.  If 
the wall is 14.5 inches across of fiberglass for every 1.5 inches across of 
wood (2x6 on 16" centers), that works out to about 18% more heat loss than 
if the whole wall was just fiberglass.

That link also discusses different stud spacings, and has some related links 
to nice calculators and such.
