well.. don't get an e6700 because its an easy overclock to get from 2.4ghz to 2.66ghz, plus its $319 and one can easily get a q6600 for 299$ on newegg... and thats a way better deal...

thats another thing, i see a lot of people saying "after OC this is etc etc" i understand overclocking a CPU is a different thread sorta thing, but as a general question - how big of a PSU do i want if im going to be overclocking like that

oh and one more thing, looking at the "Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor" would that be even better than going to a E6600? as it is quad core yet still 1066 FSB?
