    e6600 vs e6700

    Have priced myself a new build based around conroe ( what else ) and have come in £100 ish under my minimum budget. Was gonna use the e6600 as have heard this is the sweetspot of the range but was wondering would there be much benifit in using the surplus cash upgrading the cpu or is it not really worth it ?
    Thanks for any advice

    I'm not sure on the differences, but having seen the overclocks on the 6600, I doubt you'll be disappointed. As Goku said, you could spend the money on better cooling, or as I would, go down the pub for liquid refreshment
