The stock heatsink for the Conroes are pretty good even if you do some overclocking.

Agreed. No reason to upgrade unless you plan to OC > 10%.

If you look at the overclocking potential with an aftermarket fan for around $35 you can easily get 3.0 ghz from that processor, equivilant of the X6800.

Since the X 6800 sells for over $1000 it makes economic sense to spend $35 to get an extra $900 of performance.

YES
