Default Need help choosing a cpu...

I'm stuck between getting a e4300 or a e6420.

Which one should i get?

I can get a deal for the e4300 for 85$...

I'm mainly stalling for when cheaper e8x00s come out. Would this (e4300) be much of an increase in performance vs my old x2 3600+ ?

Should be a good increase in performance, and they overclock really well. I suggest you go for the E4300 deal you mentioned, since you're going to be upgrading again, soon.

What motherboard are you planning?

Yes, the E4300 should work there. The FSB shown in the specs of that P5E, is just the latest that they support.
