They are pretty much the same. I'd have a hard time choosing, the E6300 is a little better but that pc has slower ram. I might go with the second one, just because a x2 3800+ is already more than enough good.

so is there a differences between 667 ddr2 ram and 800 ddr2 ram ?
or just a little difference ?
and from reading that website, it said that intel conroe's overcloaking depends on the mobo been choosen.
so is e6300 still the better choice ?
