e6600 or e 6300? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
get a Xeon 3040
identical to a e6600 for $115 cheaper, except it has a lower multi

I'd go with the E6300 so you can upgrade later. Seriously, can you actually tell the difference? I you started with an Opteron and upgraded to a Core 2 Duo, you'd see a big difference.

Just matters on your other components. If you have so-so ram, you might want to go with the E6600, due to the higher multi.

That's more like a hybrid between the E6300 and E6600. It has the 4MB cache of an E6600 but the multiplier of an E6300 (x7).

I would go with the E6300 it really fast compared to every thing but the other C2Ds.

With the E6600 you get some bragging rights and a bit faster processor.
If you are trying to get the most power possible the E6600 is the way to go. If your interested in Value for money and want a really powerful system but you are not trying compete with the highest overclockers on this site then go with the E6300.

A E6300 still beats a 4800+ AM2.

He stated that he’s deciding between the e6300 and the e6600.
IF YOU HAVE THE OPTION THEN THE e6600 OUTPERFORMS THE e6300 

Look I’m not just saying that without knowing what i'm talking about…I had an e6400 which was a nice chip and currently have an e6600, ES e6700 and an x6800. Which chip do you think I consider the best value between the 4 that I have named? E6600 hands down. It clocks well on reasonable voltage and blows the doors off of my previous e6400.

How does Mikey know? He has had an e6300; he bought my e6400 and has had over 5 different e6600’s.

So again if you are trying to decide between buying one or the other then buy the e6600

thats where Overclocking comes in bud
or he can spend more on a higher Xeon while spending less on a e6600

notice the 3060 is just a little more expensive than the e6600
but the other 2 are significantly cheaper, and still have the 4mb cache
