Default P5B Delux + Zalman Cooler and E6300, or E6700 ?

I have £150. Now im not sure which i will receive the most benefit from.

I could sell my E6300, save up a bit, and buy a E6700 for £200

Or by an Asus P5B Delux and a Good Zalman Cooler and overclock my E6300. Bit i cant decide what, because it 'may' be possible to overclock the E6300 higher than the E6700 (?) but the E6700 has double the cache.

Any opinions ?

Heres my system:

2x 1GB Sticks of 667 Mhz PC5300 Ram
Non Overclock enabled £35 Gigabyte Mobo (lol...)
X1950Pro
200GG WD Caviar HardDrive (Sata)


Any help appreciated, or new ideas welcome (new Graphics Card etc etc)

Buy a DS3R which is cheaper and overclock the E6300 to 3.5ghz+

I have my E6300, DS3R, Arctic freezer pro 7 at 520 FSB (3640mhz)

The cache does not help that much and an E63300 @ 3.5ghz+ is faster than half of the E6600 overclocks out there (around 3.4ghz)
