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

I'm in complete agreement with that , the 6600 is a better cpu. You'll always get the people who say there's no difference, I've read it a thousand times around here. But like mikey and sdumper, I've had both, and while the 6400 is an extremely fast, nice cpu, and well worth the money IMO, the 6600 tops it.

E6600 has a higher multi (which can be handily lowered by a mobo like asus p5b, if that's what you want), higher stock speed, and 4mb cache which does make it perform better (for some popular pc tasks like video encoding for example), regardless of what some others may tell you. For alot of things you may do, either cpu is so dang fast there's no difference in the feel of it like said, but when it counts 6600 is better. Don't get me wrong and think I'm trashing the 6400, I love mine, and it's one of the fastest processors in the world hands down, especially oc'd. Only beaten a little by a couple of it's big brothers.

As far as the cache is concerned, again many will tell you it doesn't matter, I disagree. I don't buy into that conspiracy theory for one second. First of all, it's more futureproofability, no question. It makes the cpu perform faster, and it's more ready for future software/games than a 6400 is. If you just do things like surf the net and light stuff, go for the 6400 for sure, for that it will kick ass for a decade. If you're a power user and/or gamer, the 6600 is a better buy to me. Don't take that last sentence to say I mean 6400 can't game, right now it's one of the best gaming (or any task) cpu's you can get.

Before recommending that Socket 775 Xeon, I would check on compatibility with the motherboards. It's a different CPU in some ways than the 'desktop' Core 2 Duos since it's a server CPU. I have not yet been able to find information about compatibility on the main mobo websites (Asus, Gigabyte). This is something to keep in mind. (it will likely work imo, but make sure first...)

E6600. If you can't afford, I would get the E6400 over the E6300 (not much price difference, and the extra multi is nice)

May I suggest to use the most powerful of them all, and yes, even more helpful than asking for help.

The power of "search" which is located top right

Anyone and everyone will find this useful and you'll more or likely will find something about your questions.
