But is the overclockability of it worth the 70 extra dollars? Guess its up to the buyer.

x6800 is 3 times the price but not 3 times the performance. I would suggest getting the e6600 and over clocking it. If you got the money then go for it. I'd rather spend my money on a 8800gtx or a raptor HD or better ram, but thats just me.
