it would be in the same ballpark. the E8400 has an edge with it's 6mb l2 cache compared to the E6550 4mb.

the E6850 would be fair comparison rather then the E8400.

Performance does not scale linearly with FSB speed, but the higher FSB freq of the E6550 should compensate somewhat for the larger cache of the E8400.
