Also, a E6300 clocks to X6800's 2.93Ghz easy as pie. The only thing keeping it from going higher is the FSB on the motherboard, it gets too much for it to handle.
what FSB speed are you talking about? 1066 or 800?
Also, you can OC the FSB, (depending on the chipset) independantly of the RAM, so you can get even higher.
Im looking at a E6300 right now, adn I dont care if its an Allendale or cut down Conroe, It still beats many of the procs in the AMD64 X2 series out now.
Its no secret or debate that currently (not future, etc) Conroe is the winning processor.
The new debate should concentrate on what chipsets are the best to max out the performance of these chips.
(and whats G80?)
