I've been aiming to get a newer processor in my machine, currently running an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86 E6300. I was intending on grabbing an E6700 when the price dropped from it's initial #500, which it has. But now I see an Intel Chip E6750. It looks like a better chip for it's Front side bus, and it has the same features from what I am looking at, but why is it cheaper, and would it still be compatible? Which of the two is better. Thanks

The 6750 is cheaper so that they can push them on to the market. They have it set up now so it doesn't make since to buy some of their older models. Only certain boards will accept the 1333mhz FSB. What kind of mobo do you have?

It's a Dell MOBO, but I know it's an NVidia chipset

I think it's: Dell Inc. 0UY253

Thanks,

From what my google search turned up that has a Nvidia nForce 590 chipset. This will not allow a 1333mhz FSB. Sometimes there are BIOS updates that allow things like this but it is not likely with a Dell board.

Thanks, so it is a better chip, just costs less, it was a little unusual when I looked at it and wanted a second opinion. thanks, :whistling:
