I wouldn't bother down to the fact that your current E6700 hasan x10 multiplier whilst the 6750 is limited to x8. I think you should just hold off for a Core 2 Quad.
To be honest, I don't rate these new 1333FSB CPU's as being any different to their 1066FSB cousins. In my eyes there is no real difference between the E6600 and E6850. They both have the usual MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3 and EM64T. They're both dual core and they both have x9 multipliers.
As a result, the FSB Wall has been pushed farther back and the overclocking results have improved significantly. For example, our overclocking experiments revealed that the new processors can work at 3.6-3.8GHz with traditional air-cooling onboard.

Introducing CPUs with 1333MHz Bus;
As far as I'm concered, the fact they're defaulted to 333FSB instead of 266FSB bears no real relevance as any E6600 reaches 333FSB without haveing to touch the vCore. Couple that with the fact that reviews say that these CPU's can overclock to 3.6Ghz to 3.8Ghz on air doesnt seem all that different either given my own, and a number of other member's, clocking results with the E6600.
I think exising Core 2 owners should be looking towards current Core 2 Quads or future Penryn's if they're looking to upgrade to something worthwhile.
