Re: Need help with Crazy gamer PC
The 6700 may be pointless but the E6600 is not. The E6600 isn't as GOOD price/performance as the E4300 and E6300 are which are best. However the E6600 has seen many 4.0ghz+ overclocks which the E6400 has a tough time getting to, as well as the extra 2mb cache helps in other applications more than just gaming. If you are going on a budget that big get an E6600.
HOWEVER in a true gaming PC the E4300, 6300, or 6400 would probably be the best FPS for your money since the difference of 130 bucks could be put to FAR better use such. Still with a budget like that go with E6600.
