Question E6300/6400 or E6600?

Hi guys,

I'm going to be building a new rig soon. I've only got a small budget, as such I've selected the Asus P5N-E as my motherboard and was looking to probably go for an E6300/6400 and see how far I could overclock the CPU. I know both of these chips are pretty overclockable, but have 2 MB of on-board cache.

However, Tigerdirect has a crazy deal on the 6600 for 300$CDN, so it's priced 20 bucks above the 6400 and 40 more than the 6300. The 6600 is faster and has 4MB of cache. However I doubt it's as overclockable as the lower clocked CPU's.

Which do you guys think I should go for?

Thanks for your thoughts guys.

For those interested in the deal, the special for the 6600 started yesterday and ends tomorrow. (April 12th)Click here for the page.
That's Crazy!
