Cause the Core 2 Duo with the setup I'm getting all stock is gonna own anyways right?
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)
