Default conroe e6700

I was wanting to buy all of my parts from newegg, but it looks like i will buy my cpu elsewhere. Newegg is charging $700 for it, and at tigerdirect i can get it for 600, I was wanting to find it some site i can trust (like newegg) but I want to buy it for under 600. I was looking at monarchcomputer.com cause they are charging 583, but I'm not so sure cause i havent heard of them before, but they do have alot of reviews.

Get a E6600 instead. You'll thank yourself later.

but its 2.4 vs. 2.67. would the e6600 still be great for games at high settings? or running at ease when burning cds/dvds?

Yes. Both will last a good long 3-4 years, depending on what you do.

Again, yes. Both will be very handle most anything with ease.

True, but I can't seeing someone going out and buying something that really isn't necessary when they can save some of their hard earned money in the process.
