The E6600 is overkill

Its possible and its been done with this processor.

Trust me the Intel Core 2 Duo processors Smoke every thing else on the market.

For gaming if you get a E6300. Then a decent graphics card. 7600GT or better.

Its the model name. I dont know what it means. Dont really care either. The CPU kicks ass thats all i need to know.

Yes... I have enjoyed a new life to my games and also being able to encode DVDs even quicker is

There is a speed calculator in the software section of the website using that I checked the equvilent of my overclocked C2D at 3.5Ghz as a 6.Ghz Intel P4.

EDIT: CPU Converter

Thats the CPU Calculator

6 GHz that sounds a bit conservitive to me. Surely 7GHz would be more realistic.

Yes, those kinds of overclocks are most definitly possible! As for a good choice, most definitly yes! I would not buy any CPU right now other then a Core 2 Duo. If you want some idea of how their performance compairs to that of Pentium D or Athlon X2 CPUs, check out my CPU speed converter

7Ghz on the new calculator but I was going from the old one which said 6 or maybe I put in 3200 instead of 3500.

Anyways P4 gets smoked

That calculator says a Core 2 Duo 1.86 GHz equals in AMD Athlon: 2.
Whats that 2 GHz? 2000+? Sounds not much.

No, a 2000+ runs at much less then 2 GHz (more like 1.4ish). Also, if you read the converter correctly it says enter the speed in MHz, no GHz, so enter 1860 instead of 1.86 and you will get a more acurite result
