Hi, I was just wondering whether it is worth investing an extra £30 in an E6400 as I won't be doing any overclocking. I'm just wanting a gaming, work , multimedia machine (That's all!)

I'm trying to find out what extra the E6400 would give me for the price, if anything.

Thanks for that, I'm just not an experienced overclocker really. However the way you've said that makes me think I could do it. So which motherboard would I have to get and would I have to do any extra configuration after that?
Thanks for the help so far.

Brillaint, thank you very much for the advice, you've saved me a bundle, I'll probably be back for a bit more advice once I get my new "rig". Wish me luck.

E6400 is roughly 20% faster than e4300. The diferences are that E6400 supports Virtualisation and can benefit of faster memory because it has faster FSB(1067Mhz instead 800MHz).
So calculate which one is more worth for the money and buy it.

No need to recommend the RD to someone thats not going to OC to at least 400MHz FSB. Better to send them to a P965 chipset board. That and the BIOS is not for the faint of heart. Trust me.

Yes. I've been told to wait for the X38, although the Asus Striker is looking quite appealing.

A E6300 or out soon a E6320 is generaly more than enough for gaming.

You could invest the extra 30 pound in a more powerful graphic card.

Overclocking moderatly is so easy, once you do it, you'll never look back :)
