I don't think the GHz make that much of a difference if they're pretty close to eachother. 270Mhz of clock speed will not be noticed that much. Plus, the e6700 and e6600 are virtually the two most powerful processors in the Core 2 Duo line... both of them top the AMDs. A big difference would be e6600 to x6800 which is like 500Mhz, but it's like... 1.1k or something more :O

Don't buy top of the line because your gonna be paying hundreds of dollars more for a speed increase that isnt even that huge!

It also might be better to wait for the 3.2Ghz Core 2 Extreme to come out and the Quad Core (Kentsfield) one. You'll see a bigger price drop. The Core 2 Duo's just came out.. so they're gonna be really expensive... remember P4's when they first came out little did we know they would be crushed soon after by the AMDs. That's not to say that core 2 duos will be crushed though lol.. but AMD will be brewing something and then for the sakes of competition, we'll see price drops probably.
