E4 and E6 are the revision models, not the stepping. The E6 supposedly has an optomised memory controller....but the optomization doesn't do anything....at all. They tend to overclock similarly, so I'd go with what ever is cheaper.

Not true.<br><br>
The E6 do have a better memory controller. They allow you to use 4 stick of RAM and not get let their speed get off set from 400mhz to 333mhz. Also the E6 lowered the voltage from 1.35-1.40(the E4's could be anywhere in between there) to 1.35v.

Some E4 seem to be better OCers too!<br>
The 4400+ is the least expensice of the three you listed and will usually give up as good an OC and the more expensive 46/4800+
