If you really can't afoard stick what you have. also shiping may be less because you are buying all at once. Call newegg up and sometimes they themselfs will arange it.
What are you talking about?
Both the e6300 and the e6400 are Allendale cores. e6600's and up are Conroe cores. The ONLY difference between the cores are Allendales have 2mb of cache and Conroes have 4mb of cache.
The e6300 is slightly slower than the e6400 due to it running at slower frequency, but that's it.
