well an e6300 doesn't beat an FX60 the prices aren't comparable but it still means that not all Conroes beat AMD. that said the e6600 would be a better choice.

I wish fanboys like you would just go away. I've said it before and I'll say it again - There is no reason to buy an AMD right now unless you're a fanboy who wants to pay more for less performance.
