E6600 Or E6700 - Page 3

post #21 of 51
Any Core 2 Duo (except when insanely overclocked under phase or liquid nitrogen) will be a bottleneck for those 8800GTX monsters you're planning.

By the time OC'ing kills your processor (if you're careful), you'll be able to get E6600's for $60.

To finish my previous post

You have a 22" monitor, which isn't exactly a high resolution (1680 x 1050).

Your CPU won't be able to keep up with the SLI-ed cards. With that monitor, I think it's a better idea to just get one 8800GTX. The benefit of SLI will be minimal, unless you're willing to overclock HARD (over 3.5GHz)

He could get a decent water cooling loop for his CPU and get to 3.6/3.8 comfortably. Well, depending on his chip week/rev.

edit: but that's MORE money.

He stated he doesn't want to overclock that much... that's why I dispute his planned SLI purchase.

Aye! It's 3am, I can't read-straight. Just don't let a forum director know, they might pull me over for RWT (reading while tired).


Wait a minute. . .

For a kit, the swiftech is pretty good.... Should hit 3.7 or something like that with it.

And that's indeed the HZ ram... check the model number: F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ

if you left the voltage the same and put the 6600 to the same speeds as the 6700 they will live the same amount of time or so close it wont matter, they are essentially the same core

they will both oc about the same and that is going to be determined by the week/stepping you get and some luck that it is a good ocer regardless, it would be very easy to get a aftermarket cooler (i hate the stock coolers) and put a mild oc on that thing for some increased performance

i say go with the 6600, i have phase and even if price wasnt a issue i would stillg et a 6600, well maybe a 6800x just to get a unlocked multi (that would be fun)
