I am looking to upgrade my system. Trying to keep processor under $200.00. I have settled on either the core2duo E4300 or the E6300. E6300 runs faster FSB but E4300 supposed to overclock like crazy? Any hints/suggestions would be appreciated.

I have the 6300 for my person computer and i love it. I haven't felt the need to OC it yet. If I had to choose again I would probably still buy the 6300.

Right im getting the E4300 in a couple of days because on another forum I frequent there is a sticky all about the E4300 and part of it says:


On paper the E4300 is inferior to the Conroe C2Ds as it has a slower FSB of 200mhz.
However, luckily for us it runs quite happily at an FSB of 266mhz (and way beyond).
Whilst the AS-Rock boards are terrible overclockers for Conroes, they can of course manage an FSB of 266mhz.
If you do the maths, this means that an E4300 will run at 2.4ghz which is the same as an E6600

Im pretty sure that it's not only asrock boards that can do this.
