I was just wondering which of these is better and by how much.

E6420 @ 3.6 -----> fsb 450
E6600 @ 3.6 -----> fsb 400

assuming that you keep the memory the same for both 1:1

well if you want to split hairs the E6420 would be marginally faster but the E6600 would be a slightly higher quality product.
