Probably more like 3.3 - 3.5 GHz. But there are so many variables that you will not know until you try.

never mind i think i answered my own question.
to reach max for my ram i would have to adjust my fsb to 533mhz
and that would give me a processor speed of 3.73 ghz (533*7)
which is probably not feasible for the e6550
does this sound right?

According to Intel themselves, the multiplier for the E6550 is 7, so that sounds correct.
