Question Help with Processor

Hello All

I'm trying to choose a processor for a new build. Should I get a C2D 775 -- 6300, 6400, 0r 6600 with the overclocking potential of each as a major consideration and also the price.

Also, would anyone recommend waiting for the new C2D processors to be released with twice as much Cache for about the same price. Catch is I would have to wait until April. Thx

the e6300 is a great proccessor i own it myself. but if you have the money go for the e6600 for the extra cache.

i agree. the e6300 is good but personally i would aim for the full fledged conroe e6600 unless it is truly out of your price range.
