E means it's a prescott core, i have an E. EE means it's extreme edition with tons of cache to make it perform faster.

by the way, the AMD FX series beats the EE's in some benchmarks done by maximum pc in one of their latest issues, it's also cheaper.

Bascially EE adds more cache and doubles the price. If you want to spend $999+ on a cpu get an fx-55.
If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at, I will send you back an email as soon as possible.
