I see they added some cache which is nice....but are they supposed to be as nice at overclocking as the plain E6x00 series? I guess I have not read too much on it....

Ditto, unless the E6320 can OC to 3.2+ ghz as the E6300 could....then why not? the 6320 and the 6600 have the same L2 cache...and the 6320 is like $70 cheaper

The E4300 is another to keep an eye on. People have been OCing that thing like mad! And it's like $125.

Alot of people have said to get the E4300 and OC it as much as it will go..and save for a Quad-Core when the price cuts come in 4 months or so.

Yeah but its supposed to run a lot hotter too....and it too only has the 2MB L2.

I would just like my best / cheapest option for 4MB L2 core 2

been wondering about the e6x20 c2d's as well I'm in between buying one of those or an AMD X2 4800+ Brisbane to replace an aging AMD 3200+ Venice [yes I know I need a new mobo & RAM too thats what has kept me from pulling the trigger thus far].

So none of you guys know of anything that might need 2GBs of DDR500 performance ram do you?

Just waiting now...need to get my next paycheck before I make a move on a system upgrade. That is unless I can sell my Ultra-D and RAM first...

Ah...anywho...the E6600 retail seems to have disappeared from Fry's site.

Looks like I might be back to the E6420
