Of the 2, the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800.

Thought I heavily advise against either. You can buy cheaper alternatives and easily overclock them with a decent CPU cooler to match or exceed them.

Well i currently have the E4400 due, what would you suggest.

I don't think this board can run 45nm processors, i think I'm limited to 65nm ones. as far as I know. Has anyone run this CPU on this MB. Also my manual says that the FSB is 566/800/1066MHz

I may have been looking at the P5N32-E SLI model instead. I know that can run it.

Core 2 Duo E6700 based on that list.

Won't take much to overclock it to the same levels as the X6800 and you save a lot of money in the process.

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition is a piece of crap compared to any current CPU.

Even your E4400 dual core is much better than it. Get yourself a cheap 65nm dual core off ebay and overclock it.

You think so.
The Extreme has a fsb of 1066 were as the e4400 only has 800, and the extreme has a Frequency of 3733mhz where the e4400 has only 2000mhz

Is not a higher number = faster?

The Pentium CPU is a Pentium 4 single core.

The E4400 has two cores.

Not only that, but the dual core architecture of Core2s/Pentium Duals (not Pentium Ds) is much more efficient than Pentium 4s.

A single core Core2 (core solo) running at 2.5GHz will be better than a Pentium 4 running at 4GHz.

You can't directly compare the frequency if the two cpus are entirely different generations.
