There are MANY options open to you if you want to overclock, of the processors you mention, if you can wait i'd probably go c2d though, unless your a cheap sob like me
I've definitely thought about the 3600+ Brisbane, being pretty cheap myself. I'm currently running an Athlon XP 2000+, so basically anything I buy will be a signficant upgrade.

Thanks for the advice. I'll probably go ahead and wait at least another week to see if the new prices match predictions. I have a feeling that there will be an initial shortage, which might mean a more gradual decline in price, rather than an instant drop.

you should really fill out your system in your system in your profile, it will help people help you in the long run (at the top where it says "quicklinks")

i'm assuming you are making a major upgrade/new rig? with a new motherboard? don't think they made 2000+ on socket AM2, lol

Yeah man, it's going to be a COMPLETE overhaul. Went ahead and posted my current system of absolute pwnage. Here's my plan so far ($1100 budget):

MB: Gigabyte GA-P35-DSR3
PSU: Corsair 520HX
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 1GBx2 DDR-800
Hard Drive: Western Digital 320GB (16MB cache)
OS: Vista Home Premium (probably 32-bit)

This will cost me ~$550, so I have another $550 to throw at a CPU and graphics card. If I get an 8800GTS 320MB ($280), I'll have $270 for the CPU. Or I could get an 2900XT ($400), with $150 left for the CPU. Or I could spend $280 on the card, $170 on the CPU, and have an extra $100 left over to buy accessories. Decisions, decisions.

270 for a cpu? go g0 stepping q6600 - possibly land a quad between 270-300.

Brisbanes are great, especially with a good stepping. I've had mone at stock speeds undervolted, and got it to 3.18 GHz at 1.45 V with load temps of like 45 C. Really an amazing chip, especially given the price.

This one would allow you a budget of $50 for aftermarket cooling to overclock it to the same speed as the AMD 6000+.

Anyways... I guess my main question is this: How much would you have to overclock a low-end C2D to equal the performance of an AMD 6000+? I also wanted to get some general feedback as well. (BTW - First time poster!)
If you overclock the E4300 to around 2.5Ghz, that would probably match the 6000+. 2.5Ghz is probably possible around stock volts for that chip, but it can go even higher, towards 3.0 - 3.4, which will totally destroy the 6000+

What I gather, is that AT STOCK SPEEDS. The 6000+ is a better bang for buck.
So if you're not Ocing, that would be teh choice.

BUT - if you ARE prepared to - the CD2 will beat it significantly.
