it's not on your list, but i'd suggest going with the core 2 duo e4300. it's going to be released at the end of the month and it's really quite exceptional. default clock of 1.8ghz, i believe, but it can easily be overclocked to 3.7ghz with the stock cooler and it gives better performance than the core 2 duo extreme chips. just an idea :thumbsup: it's also only going to be about 180 USD, which is a steal.

e4300? and how about a comparison of performances with e6600 and e6400?
Would e4300 do good?

that article should tell you everything you need to know :thumbsup: it looks to beat out all the other core 2 duos when it's overclocked.

and about overclocking, I have never done that before, is it safe, I know it is going to diminish the processor's life but in what speed?
Could it last for 5 years smoothly?

Processors are generally design to last over ten years, so even with overclocking they should last five unless your going to go really extreme in your overclocking.
